Why do you need to learn CPR?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, performed properly and promptly can help victims survive until the ambulance personnel trained in advanced medical techniques arrive on the scene. Almost two thirds of deaths from heart attacks occur before the victim reaches a hospital. Many of these deaths can be prevented if victims received prompt help.

Should you make the commitment to learn CPR...
Perhaps a loved one suffers from heart disease. Maybe your job handles medical emergencies. No matter what your reason, it is important to realize that just knowing how to properly perform CPR will make you a more useful member of your community. Brain death occurs within 4-6 minutes after the heart stops beating. Speed in starting CPR and calling 911 is the key to helping save lives.
