Plan for It: How to Perform CPR


Posted in: English , Infographics

If someone collapses in front of you, how would you respond? Being prepared allows you to take charge of the situation and potentially save a life.

Follow this guide to learn about hands-only CPR for teens and adults. Remember to always call 911 in a life-threatening emergency and follow the dispatcher's directions.
