CPR Class to be Held at the M.S. Kirby Library

Every year more than 350,000 Americans suffer cardiac arrest where the heart stops beating. When this happens there is no circulation of essential oxygenated blood. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States with nearly four out of five cases occurring outside a hospital.

When a person's heart stops every second counts as irreversible damage to brain cells begins. Without immediate assistance, the chances of survival are dismal. Bystanders, whether in a public gathering space such as an airport, shopping mall, a workplace, or in the home, play a vital role in improving the chances of survival. Emergency care by family members, friends, coworkers or bystanders can mean the difference between life and death.

Bystander CPR consists of chest compressions that maintain circulation of the oxygen remaining in a person's blood. Research has shown the effectiveness of this "hands only" technique.

Registration for this program may be done by visiting the library at 35 Kirby Ave., Mountaintop or by calling 570-474-9313.
