Students at the MFL MarMac McGregor Center learned about hands-only CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) last week, with the help of Jill Miller, a nurse at Central Community Hospital in Elkader.
CPR is necessary when a person is having sudden cardiac arrest, Miller told students. CPR helps send oxygen through the body’s bloodstream, keeping organs alive.
Miller explained how hands-only CPR is administered, noting that breathing into a person’s mouth is not necessary.
