Two hands.  One life saved.  Learn how.

That's the message behind a worldwide campaign to educate everyone on the importance of learning cardiopulmonary resuscitation, more commonly known as CPR.

On Wednesday, May 22,  the American Medical Response will host several compression-only CPR training sessions across the Kansas City metro area.  The AMR World CPR Challenge is a day of free CPR training in an attempt to teach as many people as possible how to save the life of a spouse, a child or neighbor using compression-only CPR.

Paramedics David Roll and Kenya Love appeared on Tuesday's FOX 4 Morning Show to demonstrate the proper way to do compression-only CPR.

For more information on the CPR class in your area of the metro, go to http://www.amr.net/News/AMR-World-CPR-Challenge.aspx.
