CPR - Learn it for someone you love (09/11/2013)
From: Helen Bagshaw, RN

Winona Health ICU nurse

I would like to invite you to a 30 minute session of ‘Hands-Only CPR.’ This means learning how to perform chest compressions with no mouth to mouth resuscitation. These free Community Workshop sessions are open to all. Come and share some time with family, friends, and neighbors learning an easy and important life saving skill. The workshop will be held on Saturday, September 21. The half-hour sessions are fun and easy, no test outs or quizzes — just me and the mannequins and the beat of the Bee Gees ‘Staying Alive.’

You also learn how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and what to do if an adult, child or infant is choking.

In February 2013 we trained 50 people in ‘Hands-Only CPR’ in one day. The 50 community members included couples, families, groups of friends, students and children. All ages from 12 to over 80 years old participated and enjoyed the half-hour sessions.

My target is to train 100 people in one day in this September workshop.

Here are a few good reasons to sign up:

• 89 percent of cardiac arrests happen at home.

• 400,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital setting each year in the US.

• 89 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die because they don’t receive immediate CPR.

• 70 percent of Americans feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they don’t know CPR.

• Hands Only CPR can double or triple a sudden cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

• Each year, sudden cardiac arrest causes more deaths than lung cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS combined.

Sign up for a free half-hour session any time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 21, to learn easy skills that could save a life of someone you love.

Sign up for a 30-minute workshop at Winona Health by calling 507-474-3328 or RSVP online at winonahealth.org/cpr.

Thank you so much — see you on September 21.
