Polk Medical Center also offers hand-only CPR classes. This method of CPR does not require mouth-to-mouth breaths. A person who experiences a heart attack has the best chance of survival when CPR is performed immediately. Hands-only CPR has been shown to be just as effective as conventional CPR in saving lives and can be performed easily by any member of the general public who has received training.
Our heart care professionals offer hands-only CPR courses throughout the year and are available to come to your organization or event and teach this life-saving method. To learn more, call 770.749.4070.
