Huntington Memorial Hospital and Pasadena Fire Department Partner at Paseo Colorado for CPR Hands-Only Training

June 8, 2015

Last week, Huntington Memorial Hospital and Pasadena Fire Department hosted a free, Hands-Only CPR Training at the Paseo Colorado in Pasadena. CPR instructors demonstrated the basics and proper techniques of Hands-Only CPR for teens and adults. Over two hundred participants practiced the technique on mannequins and received additional information about CPR certification.

Thank you to all who participated!

According to the American Heart Association, cardiac arrests are more common than you think. Nearly 300,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually and only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.
