Hands-Only CPR Lunch And Learn

ST. PETERSBURG, APRIL, 2018
- Please join Northside Hospital on Wednesday, May 16th at 11:00 a.m. for a Hands-Only CPR Lunch and Learn, presented by the American Heart Association and SunStar Paramedics. Did you know that 70 percent of out-of hospital cardiac arrests happen within the home and that less than half of cardiac arrest victims receive the immediate care they need before professional help arrives? Hands-Only CPR can double or even triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival yet most Americans feel helpless to act in a cardiac emergency because they don’t know CPR. Join the American Heart Association and SunStar for a 30-minute Hands-Only CPR training to give you the skills you need to save a life! We’ll give you hands-on practice during an interactive and memorable training session. The training will be held in the Northside Hospital Auditorium, 6006 49th Street North Suite 230. Become a lifesaver on May 16 by registering today at 1-855-422-2228 or visit NorthsideHospital.com.
