Why be a Heart Hero?
The leading cause of death is cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest is an electrical malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat and disrupts the flow of blood to the brain, lungs and other organs. When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival may depend on receiving immediate CPR from someone nearby.
Hands-Only CPR focuses on the first few minutes following cardiac arrest. Frequent chest compressions move oxygen through the body to keep the brain and other vital organs alive, helping buy time until help arrives.
We also encourage everyone to engage in heart healthy activities to reduce their risk of heart disease.
Don’t drop the beat! Music Can Help Save Lives
Hands-Only CPR is performed by pushing hard and fast in the center of chest, without using mouth-to-mouth breaths like traditional CPR. Rerform Hands-Only CPR by simply humming one of their favorite tunes. Songs like "Stayin’ Alive" by the Bee Gees, "Hips Don’t Lie" by Shakira, or "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z, all correspond to the correct chest rate of 100 to 120 compressions by minute.
