New Video for Hands-Only CPR Uses ASL

Hands-Only CPR is a method of simplifying CPR. According to the American Heart Association, "It's not normal to see an adult suddenly collapse, but if you do, call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest. Don't be afraid. Your actions can only help."

To advertise the simplified method of CPR, the AHA created an advertisement using American Sign Language. According to the commercial, which is signed and captioned, "Hands can do incredible things. But nothing compares to using them to help save a life with Hands-Only CPR."

Go to the AHA website for Hands-Only CPR to view the video as well as a demonstration of this life-saving technique.
