Let Me Teach You CPR!

Did you know that I am a Spokesperson for the American Red Cross (where I am also an Instructor for First Aid, CPR, and AED classes at various levels)? Well…now you know! 

Last week, I was invited back on The Dr. Oz Show to demonstrate how to perform CPR and use an AED, and talk about why they’re such important skills to know. It was my 4th time on the show and I had a blast shooting the segments. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to once again represent the Red Cross!

Check out all three segments below 🙂

Bob Harper (of “The Biggest Lose” fame) was on The Dr. Oz Show to talk about his recent medical scare: three months ago he went into cardiac arrest at a gym. He credits quick CPR and AED use for saving his life.

Dr. Oz wanted to showcase that anyone can learn CPR in just a few minutes – so we held a “Hands-Only CPR class” during his show and invited several audience members to participate!

There are 2 steps to performing CPR. If your victim is unresponsive and not breathing, STEP ONE is to call 911. Then put your hands in the center of the chest, with the heel of one hand along the breastbone, and do STEP TWO: push hard and fast.
