St. Francis Medical Center Hosts “Sidewalk CPR”
By Staff
Published June 1, 2017

Jun. 1-7
In support of National CPR Week June 1-7, St. Francis Medical Center is offering free Hands-Only CPR classes to the community in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 90 percent of victims suffering a cardiac arrest (heart suddenly stops) outside of a hospital setting die. Less than half of these victims get the immediate help they need before professional first responders arrive. Immediate CPR can more than double a victim’s chance of survival. With 70 percent of cardiac arrests occurring at home, administering CPR could save the life of a family member or other loved one. To register for a session, please call the hospital’s Health Benefits Resource Center at (310) 900-7380. CPR instructors will demonstrate the proper techniques of Hands-Only CPR, and participants will have the opportunity to practice on mannequins. The training will not result in CPR certification, but information on how to get certified will be available.
