AHA to offer free sidewalk CPR training during National CPR Week

Sidewalk CPR, free 60-second CPR Training Program
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
11:30AM - 1:00PM
East Jefferson General Hospital Atrium
4200 Houma Boulevard, Metairie

The American Heart Association is offering FREE lunchtime CPR trainings. Trainers and mannequins will be set up in the EJGH Atrium teaching people how use Hands-Only CPR, in approximately 60 seconds, in honor of National CPR Week (June 3 – 9). The American Heart Association calls on the community to learn how to give Hands-Only CPR because effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim's chance of survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. With approximately 300,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occurring each year and 80 percent occurring at home, the life you save is most likely to be someone you love.
