How to learn hands-only CPR for free at the airport

Thanks to a (AHA), air travelers can learn a version of CPR, for free, in their free time at airports across the country: “Travelers can now learn Hands-Only CPR in just a few minutes at [airport kiosks] that provide quick lessons and practice using a video touch-screen and a CPR mannequin.”

, “each kiosk has a touch screen with a short video that provides an overview of Hands-Only CPR, followed by a practice session and a 30-second test. With the help of a practice mannequin, or a rubber torso, the kiosk gives back about the depth and rate of compressions, as well as proper hand placement – which are the key factors that influence the effectiveness of CPR. Instructions are offered in English or Spanish and include closed captioning.”

A total of 27 kiosks can now be found throughout the U.S. with 11 of those in the following airports:

  • Atlanta
  • Baltimore
  • Chicago O’Hare
  • Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky
  • Cleveland
  • Columbus
  • Dallas-Fort Worth
  • Indianapolis
  • Las Vegas
  • Oakland
  • Orlando

According to the AHA, more than 350,000 heart attacks happen outside of a hospital, and about 20% happen in public areas like airports. So far, 91,000 people have trained for CPR using these kiosks. If you see one or use one, let us know in the comments!
