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.
