Thanks to CPR kiosks at some airports you can in 4 minutes learn ‘Hands-only CPR’.
After evaluating different ways of teaching CPR: a kiosk session with a manikin, a class with a facilitator and a video-only session it was realized a 4 min session is as effective as a 30 min. CPR class.
You should look for these free kiosks in over 30 high traffic airports next flight.
Every year, more than 359,000 cardiac arrests occur outside the hospital and more than 20 percent occur in public places like airports, casinos, and sporting facilities.
Sadly 90 percent of people who have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die before medical help arrives – that’s where we all come in as ‘bystanders’, performing Hands only chest compressions can make a difference.
One kiosk alone at Dallas Terminal C, gate 7 has trained over 25,000 people!
