Hands Only CPR

It's that time of year when my students receive CPR instruction and this time around things are a little different. Current accepted theory suggests that 'hands only CPR' is equally effective and lay people are more likely to perform CPR if they know that they don't have to perform the 'mouth-to-mouth' component. In class we showed this video but I thought that the Matthew McConaughey video clip might be more memorable for our students. For more information you could visit the American Red Cross website.

  1. We are still told that the corect pace of the compressions is that of "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees or "Another One Bites The Dust" by Queen.
    Does anyone have any modern equivalents for my students. It's sad to say that not all of them have heard of the Bee Gees or Queen!
