Cardiac arrest happens when the entire heart stops beating, and can happen anywhere to anyone at any time.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Iowa. Most cardiac arrest happens in the home. For every one-minute CPR is not performed on a person in cardiac arrest the chance of survival decreases.

Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths.

It is recommended for use by people who have seen a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting; such as at home, at work, or in a park.

Hands-Only CPR consists of two easy steps:

  1. Call 911
  2. Push hard and fast. During CPR, you should push on the chest at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minutes.

For additional information on Hands-Only CPR, watch the short video below.
