Penn Center for Resuscitation Science CPR Training

Help us keep us going to train Philadelphians in CPR
ABOUT US
The Center for Resuscitation Science has set a goal to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest. To do this we want to travel to you to teach you CPR with the Mobile CPR Project Philadelphia, and in-hospital patient training with CPR training for Family and Friends.

Our number one goal is to train laypeople how to recognize a cardiac arrest and to learn CPR. Learning CPR can keep you and your family safe. Most of the time when someone experiences a cardiac arrest, it is in their home. If your family member experiences a cardiac arrest the best thing you can do is perform CPR, it can save their life!

These are the lives we are dedicated to saving, and the one thing they all have in common is that someone stepped up and performed CPR! https://youtu.be/HqKS_5hjiHk

WHAT IS CARDIAC ARREST?
Cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating. This is different from a heart attack. Cardiac arrest can strike anyone at any time and most of the time it is fatal. As scary as this is, the best way to keep someone alive when their heart stops beating is to do CPR. A new form of CPR called Hands-Only CPR teaches people to do compressions without rescue breathing. This means you are no longer required to breathe for a victim, just use your hands to keep their heart pumping.

Everyone should learn to save a life! Help us spread the word and teach CPR to all Philadelphians!
