June is CPR & Summer Safety Month

Do you know Hands-Only CPR? 

Hands-Only CPR, which involves only chest compressions, has emerged in recent years as an alternative to standard CPR, which involves both chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth rescue breaths.

Each year, over 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. Statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved.

And, just because it's heating up outside doesn't mean you should slow down. There are lots of ways to stay active during the summer months.

  • Check out these 25 ways on how to move more during summer.
  • School's out! -- Keep the kids active with these creative and fun ideas.
  • Some people are afraid to exercise after a heart attack. But regular physical activity can help reduce your chances of having another one. (check with your doctor of course.)
  • Are you fitting in at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of heart-pumping physical activity per week? If not, you’re not alone. Only about one in five adults and teens get enough exercise to maintain good health. You've got this!

Have a healthy summer!
