Staying alive, staying alive...

At its Friends and Neighbors Meeting tonight, North Willow Glen Neighborhood Association was very happy to host Anne Wilde for a demonstration of CPR techniques including the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). We all learned a lot and thank Anne very much!

One hundred compressions are needed every minute, so if you sing the Bee Gees song, "Staying Alive," you will produce the right frequency of chest compressions.

To schedule a class to become certified by Anne, her web site is http://www.anneaerobic.com/.

Anne explains the easy-to-use AEDs

Dan tries out chest compressions with a practice dummy
Bill practices with the AED as it narrates what to do step by step

Alan practices the deep compressions that are necessary to get blood moving and breathing restarted
