OK. You've decided that you need to attend a Bystander CPR course, because you have come to realize that you have a one-in-seven chance of witnessing at least one sudden cardiac arrest in your lifetime and that, when you do witness an arrest, the odds are 85% that the victim will be a family member, a friend, or an acquaintance.
But now you are worried about having to stand there helplessly and watch a family member die, if you see an arrest before you attend that CPR class you just registered for at an American Heart Association learning center or an American Red Cross Chapter.
We have the answer: go to
http://www.slicc.org/ClassVideo/100412_CVschh.m4v and download the class video we used at Sun City Hilton Head. It's not a substitute for attending a class, but it will get you through the tough parts if you see someone arrest before you get to attend that class.
