Hands-Only CPR Training at Kodak Alaris

A couple weeks ago, as part of our Corporate Wellness Initiative, we partnered with the American Heart Association and Monroe Ambulance to provide “Hands Only CPR” training. It’s one of the ways we are looking to build a healthy workplace.

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don’t be afraid. Your actions can only help. Hands only CPR is an alternative to providing Compressions and Breaths and can keep someone alive until emergency responders arrive. Experts hope bystanders will now be more willing to jump in and help if they see someone suddenly collapse. Hands-only CPR is simpler and easier to remember and removes a big barrier for people skittish about the mouth-to-mouth breathing.

So many good questions were brought up and so many employees have shown an interest in AED locations in our building.   It is a real comfort to know that we have 140 more skilled responders to a Cardiac emergency today than we did previous to this session.

We are also beginning to work on our 2015 Heart Walk Campaign, so having discussions about healthy eating, exercise, stress reduction may be future topics.

  1. Keeping it exciting and stimulating can awaken any dormant bonding.

    Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith are fine,
    says source, really. Gili does not have many friends, but at the start of the film, she is
    acquainted with at least two or three guys at her new school.
