Description

A modified version of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is making it easier to remember what to do if someone suddenly collapses in front of you. Continuous compression CPR, also called hands-only CPR, is easier to learn and perform, and it doesn’t require breathing for the victim. According to the American Heart Association, it can be done on teens or adults, using a compression rhythm that matches the beat of the Bee Gees song, “Stayin’ Alive.” In this Mayo Clinic Minute, registered nurse Jill Henderson shows you how easy it is to use hands-only CPR to save a life.
