Hands Only CPR Training

When Steve Pace collapsed on the floor, his wife Carmen dialed 9-1-1 and immediately began chest compressions. She wasn’t certain she was using the proper technique, but doctors, nurses and first responders agree that her quick action saved Steve’s life, keeping him alive until the ambulance arrived.

Inspired by the story of Carmen’s quick thinking, the team at the Prairie Heart Institute launched “Keeping the Pace – Hands Only CPR” training to bring a simpler life-saving technique to the community.

Hands Only CPR is recommended by the American Heart Association for bystanders untrained in CPR. It is also recommended for situations when the rescuer is unable or unwilling to provide mouth-to-mouth ventilations.
