Hands Only CPR Mobile Tour makes a stop in the Valley

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - The American Heart Association's Hands Only CPR Mobile Tour made a stop at the Southern Park Mall in Boardman Wednesday. 

Instructors spent the afternoon training people the hands only CPR method to the beat of the song 'Staying Alive'. 

While the conventional CPR method, which consists of 30 compressions followed by two breaths, is recommended most times, instructors say hands only CPR should be used if a person witnesses an adult or teen collapse outside of a hospital setting. 

"A lot of times we have found people are afraid," said tour emcee Kelly Martyn.  "If you sing 'Staying Alive' and you push to the beat of 'Staying Alive' you will remember how fast, how slow you need to go."

The Hands Only CPR Mobile Tour is a half hour training session, not an official certification program.  Guests get a free CPR kit, which includes a DVD, handouts and a doll to practice on.  The tour will stop at the UAW 1112 Union Hall on Saturday, June 22, 2013, from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
