In celebration of Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month, the AHA released a new web-based video, “Rules of Hands-Only CPR,” featuring the cast of the CBS hit series “Rules of Engagement.” Filmed in the style of the sitcom, the short asks Americans to learn the life-saving skill of Hands-Only CPR and can be viewed here:
The Bee Gees’ classic “Stayin’ Alive” – which is the near-perfect rate for doing chest compressions during CPR – remains the centerpiece of the association’s Hands-Only CPR awareness campaign. “Rules of Hands-Only CPR” imagines a casual dinner conversation between two couples as they discuss the reasons for learning Hands-Only CPR. Newly engaged sweethearts, Adam & Jennifer (Oliver Hudson, Bianca Kajlich) assist their enthusiastic friend Audrey (Megyn Price) in teaching her macho husband, Jeff (Patrick Warburton), the simple steps to save a life. Just as the scene is coming to a close, Timmy (Adhir Kalyan) bursts in in his finest white disco suit.
Now that you know the ‘Rules of Hands-Only CPR’, take a few minutes to help us spread awareness of Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month and share this video with friends and family!
