Learn Hands-Only CPR to Save Lives

Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It’s recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an out-of-hospital setting.  Hands-Only CPR is easy to learn, doesn't require rescue breaths, but can still save lives!

The American Heart Association (AHA) reports that Hands-Only CPR performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR with mouth-to-mouth breaths in the first minutes of an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.
