MSA class to offer hands-only CPR course

UMKC School of MedicineThe UMKC School of Medicine’s Master of Science in Anesthesia Program Class of 2012 will offer a class in Hands Only CPR for School of Medicine staff from 10-11 a.m. and from 2-3 p.m. on Friday, May 4 in the Youngblood Medical Skills Lab (Ground Floor – School of Medicine).

The class for School of Medicine staff will take approximately 50 minutes.  Reservations for the class are required, but will be accepted until the day before the event.

According to the American Heart Association, training in Hands-Only CPR increases the chance that a bystander will take action in a cardiac emergency. Hands-Only CPR offers an easy to remember and effective option to  bystanders who have been previously trained in CPR but are afraid to help because they are not confident that they can remember and perform the steps of conventional CPR.
