Learning hands-only CPR could save a life

GREEN BAY – Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is very, very possible.  This week women will gather in Appleton to learn how to save lives by learning hands only CPR.  It’s just part of the “Appleton Mission Possible: Go Red for Women” event at Lawrence University Thursday evening.  American Heart Association Go Red director Annie Bongiorno says the night will also include fashions by Macy’s, food, a silent auction, and stories of survival from women with heart disease. According to the AHA, one out of three women dies from heart disease and more women than men have died of cardiovascular diseases every year since 1984. Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease in women.

EMS Supervisor Katie Stuczynski of Gold Cross Ambulance showed Rachel how to perform hands only CPR.  To see another demonstration you can click here to see a video on The American Heart Association’s website.
