noun - Hands-Only CPR is a two-step process developed by the American Heart Association. Firstly, call 911 and secondly push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of any tune that is 100 to 120 beats per minute. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a person's chance of survival.

Examples



Steven Munatones - post heart attack - talks at the Science Center at Harvard University on June 2019. He experienced a ventricular fibrillation arrest, atypical thrombus (clot) and a MI (myocardial infarction) in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery, otherwise known as a widow maker, before his 17-year-old son saved him with Hands-Only CPR in May 2016.
