When an adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, his or her survival depends greatly on immediately getting cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from someone nearby. Unfortunately, less than 1/3 of those people who experience a cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location get immediate help. For every minute that the heart remains in arrest, the chances of survival decrease by 7 to10%.
Heart attacks are a leading cause of workplace fatalities. As such, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends providing CPR training and information to employees as part of a workplace first aid program to help them respond appropriately to a cardiac emergency.
Personnel Concepts’ 2016 Performing CPR Poster includes CPR procedures recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) and includes helpful illustrations and instructions for first responders and bystanders. This poster has been revised as of March 2016 to reflect the latestAHA guidelines, including revised instructions for both hands-only and mouth-to-mouth CPR techniques. Key revisionsinclude a new maximum depth for chest compressions, changes to the rate of rescue breaths for unresponsive victims, and an increase of the recommended range of compressions per minute.
