Saving a life never looked so good…or seemed so simple
Something about sleek-looking motion graphics (the words, arrows and text that fly across the screen) always brings an added element of coolness to videos like this one…not that Compression Only CPR needs any help in the “hipness” department. After all, the technique can be effective in sustaining the vital flow of blood and oxygen in the first few minutes following a cardiac arrest. Saving a life? That pretty much tops the list of cool.
If being able to help out others is your thing (and we sincerely hope it is), then “Save-a-Life-Saturday” is for you. This Saturday, March 19, at 10 a.m. in Walgreens across the region, the American Red Cross Palm Beaches-Treasure Coast Region is hosting a FREE Compression Only CPR class. The idea behind the 45-minute class comes as a way to honor Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and all those involved in the Tucson tragedy – a horrible situation where the responders’ knowledge of first aid truly made a difference.
So come increase your coolness, and your life-saving knowledge, and learn Compression Only CPR during our Save-a-Life Saturday event at one of the following Walgreens locations:
