Harrington HealthCare System to Hold Hands-Only CPR Training at The Big E

Monday, September 18, 2017

 

Hands-Only CPR

Harrington HealthCare System will hold hands-only CPR training to attendees of The Big E on the front lawn of the Massachusetts State Exposition Building on Massachusetts Day.

Massachusetts day is set for Thursday, September 21.

The training will be conducted by Jon Gorman, RN, BSN, and the Harrington team for the second straight year.

“What was so incredible, though, was what happened after. We got a call informing us that three different people at the event had gone into cardiac arrest on-site. When the EMS arrived at each of those three scenes, members of the public were there with the victims doing chest compressions. Incredibly, people who had been by our tent and learned chest compressions were able to put their skills to use to save a life that very same day,” said Gorman.

Hands-Only CPR

According to the American Heart Association, Hands-Only CPR is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting such as at home, at work or in a park. It consists of two easy steps: 1.

Call 9-1-1 (or send someone to do that); 2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest. Hands-Only CPR performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR (CPR that includes breaths) in the first few minutes of an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.
