What is Hands-Only CPR?

Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an "out-of-hospital" setting (such as at home, at work, or in a park). It consists of two easy steps:


1. Call 911 (or send someone to do that).
2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest.

When you call 911, you need to stay on the phone until the 911 dispatcher (operator) tells you to hang up. The dispatcher will ask you about the emergency. They will also ask for details such as your location. It is important to be specific, especially if you are calling from a mobile phone as that is not associated with a fixed location or address. Remember that answering the dispatcher's questions will not delay the arrival of help.

Pitt County Hands-Only CPR Initiative

All Pitt County fire departments in conjunction with the Pitt County Office of Emergency Medical Services Division, Pitt Community College, Vidant Health, and other community partners are excited to introduce the Pitt County Hands-Only CPR Initiative.

Bystander-CPR rates in Pitt County hover around 20%. This means that a patient in cardiac arrest in Pitt County currently has about a one in five chance of having someone step in to offer CPR prior to the arrival of first responders. We think we can do much better! Therefore, the community partners named above have begun implementation of a program designed to capture as many people as possible at sporting events, health fairs, and community festivals, which will provide ten to twenty minute training in Hands-Only CPR. Similar Hands-Only CPR initiatives have seen bystander CPR rates increase from around 30% to more than 75% one-year following implementation.

Studies have found that many bystanders report they are hesitant to react in an emergency because they feel they are not properly trained, or they are afraid to provide mouth-to-mouth breaths. The American Heart Association's research has shown that the heart usually has about ten minutes of residual oxygen in the blood and that providing early chest compressions along with early access to an automatic external defibrillator (AED) provides the best chance for survival in a sudden cardiac emergency.
