Hands-Only CPR or Bystander CPR, it is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting (such as at home, at work or in a park). It consists of two easy steps: Call 9-1-1 (or send someone to do that). Push hard and fast in the center of the chest. Communities with high rates of Bystander CPR have higher survival rates and it takes less than 15 minutes to lean.
