Do you know how to do the new CPR? These videos will teach you!

We all know what CPR is but do you know how to do it?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a first aid technique that involves conducting chest compressions on someone who has suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

By administering CPR until a defibrillator is located or medical help arrives, you can double a victim’s chance of survival.

The “new CPR” is ‘hands-only’ without the need for mouth to mouth resuscitation.

Learning how to do it is easy, and you can start by watching these two short videos:
