June 1 through 7 is National CPR and AED Awareness Week and the American Heart Association has recently created additional Hands Only CPR videos.
Hands-Only CPR has just two simple steps: 1) If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 9-1-1; and 2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic Bee Gees' song "Stayin' Alive."
We've teamed up with a popular DJ, DJ Earworm, to create an uplifting, powerhouse mash-up that is at least 100 beats per minute - the rate you should perform chest compressions during CPR.
We made this Hands-Only CPR Mash-Up Video<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GECRg9257OM&feature=youtu.be> to raise awareness about Hands-Only CPR and encourage people to learn the easy steps on our website at www.heart.org/handsonlycpr<http://www.heart.org/handsonlycpr>.
In addition, the AHA also created a new training demo video<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8iU3Mtblho>. By taking just 60 seconds to watch this video, someone can learn the easy steps to Hands-Only CPR.
Feel free to share the links above with your students, instructors, etc.
Thank you for all that you do for the American Heart Association.
