CSU-Pueblo Outdoor Pursuits, AMR partner to offer free compression-only CPR training
PUEBLO – In observance of National
Emergency Medical Services Week, Colorado State University-Pueblo and American
Medical Response (AMR) will offer free compression-only CPR training on May 22.
On Wednesday, May 22,
CSU-Pueblo’s Outdoor Pursuits program and AMR will compete in the AMR World CPR
Challenge, a free day of CPR training that attempts to teach as many people as possible how to save the life of a
spouse, a child or neighbor using compression-only CPR.
The trainings will be held at
10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the Occhiato University Center
Aspen Leaf Room. Space is limited to the first 25 people per time slot.
Compression-only CPR is easy,
less invasive and has the ability to keep a cardiac arrest victim alive during
the precious minutes until first responders arrive. This type of CPR can
help save lives and is easy to perform. The goal of the event is to save
as many lives as possible and energize people about learning CPR by being part
of this record-breaking event.
