Hands-Only CPR: Two Steps to Staying Alive
Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It 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 911 (or send someone to do that) and 2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
