CPR is something that everyone should know. Every year upwards of 200,000 people die due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest, and the leading cause of accidental death for kids between the ages of 1 and 4 is drowning. One of the best ways that we can cut down this disturbing number is by certifying as many people as possible with CPR. The following is our list of the top 4 reasons to get CPR training in NYC:
- No more mouth-to-mouth- Many people aren't comfortable giving someone else mouth-to-mouth, but it may make you feel better to know that mouth-to-mouth is no longer a requirement. In fact, for many adults that have suffered from Sudden Cardiac Arrest, hands-only CPR was just as effective as CPR with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
- Easy to learn- It doesn't take a lot of your precious time or energy to learn hands-only CPR. In fact, it is quick and easy to learn!
- The majority of cardiac arrests happen in the home- Approximately 88% of cardiac arrests happen at home. When an incident like this occurs, the victim's chance of survival is doubled when CPR is provided immediately.
- You may save a life- The victim only has 4 to 6 minutes before their brain dies after their heart stops beating. When you perform CPR, you are getting oxygen to their brain and other vital organs. This gives them their best chance to survive. Approximately 50,000 of the 200,000 deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest deaths per year could have been prevented.
