How to Do Continuous Chest Compression CPR

Continuous Chest Compression CPR is…

Easier to Learn,

Easier to Perform,

and MORE Effective than

Traditional CPR

Cardiac arrest claims someone’s life every 60-seconds!  Heart attacks happen without warning and can happen to anyone, at any time and any place even when you’re sleeping. When it happens, a person’s best chance at survival is contingent upon two very important factors. The most important of those factors is that someone is nearby that can administer continuous chest compression CPR and the second factor is how quickly the CPR technique is administered.

For every minute that lapses, from the time of cardiac arrest to the administration of continuous chest compression CPR, the patient’s survival rate drops 10 percent.  A 5-minute lag-time reduces the survival rate by 50 percent.  That’s why it’s imperative to begin CPR as quickly as possible.

The ease of Continuous Chest Compression CPR lends itself to rapid implementation because…

YOU DON’T HAVE TO…

  • Check for a Pulse
  • Clear the Patient’s Airway or
  • Perform Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation!

All you have to do is start continuous chest compression CPR at a rate of 100 compressions per minute.
