Kids Can Learn and Use CPR Too

Thanks to an initiative from the American Heart Association (AHA), more than one million kids in America are learning to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This video, presented by the AHA, urges all families to learn how to do hands-only CPR. This simple technique, which is being taught in schools across the country, involves calling 911 first and then doing chest compressions at the same tempo as the song, “Stayin’ Alive.”

You can hear more about the importance of learning CPR by watching this video. You’ll hear the story of Jacob, who is now an emergency medical technician. When he was younger, he experienced a tragedy at summer camp. Two boys drowned because they were unable to swim. This experience inspired him to become a lifeguard and learn CPR.
