Could You Save a Hunting Buddy in Distress?

Baby boomers won’t stop hunting, and here’s to those who give it their all. With older hunters in camp, you’re more likely to run into someone with a heart issue. That’s why it’s important that you know what to do in case of emergency. Fortunately, this new version of CPR requires just one action — the chest pump. If you can recall the disco beat of The Bee Gee’s aptly-titled “Staying Alive,” you can easily save a life.

Sarver Heart Center’s newest video makes it easy to learn Continuous Chest Compression CPR. Every three days, more Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest than the number who died in the 9-11 attacks. You can lessen this recurring loss by learning this hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. Watch physician researchers Gordon A. Ewy, MD, and Karl Kern, MD, demonstrate the easy, life-saving method that they developed at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

Watch this informative video that explains the process in detail. Someone you love will be thankful you did.
