Learn CPR and you may save a life. CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is an emergency lifesaving technique you can use when someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a victim’s chances of survival, and since four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home, the life you save is likely to be a loved one.
Kate's heart advice: “Park your car a little farther away from your destination so you can get in an extra minute or two of walking, use the stairs whenever you can, and if you work a desk job, get up at least once every hour and move around a little. It’s the small changes every day that can make a big difference.”
