When the heart suddenly stops, a more common event than you might think, time is of the essence. Without treatment within 10 minutes, the survival rate is almost zero. But when a person in cardiac arrest receives cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) right away, the odds of are double or even triple.
Because most people are home when the unthinkable happens, quick action by relatives and friends, called 'by-stander CPR" is a lifesaving link in the chain of survival. And it's easier than ever to do, according to American Heart Association guidelines.
'Every able-bodied person should be able to respond to cardiac arrest by at least recognizing it, calling 911 and doing chest compression's,' says Robert N, M.D., Ph.D. immediate past chair of the American Heart Association's Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee.
HOW to GIVE HANDS-ONLY CPR
If someone is suddenly unresponsive or stops breathing, follow these steps;
You don't have to do mouth-to-mouth breathing anymore. The new, easy way, called 'hands-only CPR," uses continuous chest compression's. And it's just as effective, experts cay.
You can still give CPR if you haven't had training or your certification card is expired. "Whatever you do is better than nothing,' says Arthur Sanders, M.D. Hands-only CPR is so simple.
You won't hurt anybody by trying. "People worry they will break a rib. But the truth is, the person is dead, Sanders says. And Good Samaritan Laws in every state offer protection against liability. You can't be sued for trying, and you just make a huge difference.
3 Surprises About CPR
Call 911 or send someone to call.
Be specific about where you are, especially if you're using a cell phone. Dispatchers will get an emergency crew out to help (and can coach you through CPR).
With the heel of your hand, push hard and fast at the center of the chest.
Try doing it to the beat of the disco classic "Stayin Alive" heart experts say the well-named song sets the perfect pace, about 100 to 120 compressions per minute. Press down about two inches.
Keep going until help arrives.
To keep your hands from tiring, lace them together and straighten your arms with your elbows locked as you press down.
