Roundtable

Join us at our monthly District Roundtable on the Second Thursday of the Month at the Boys and Girls Club
(543 Center St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060)
  • March 12th, 2020 at 7 PM – Training Topic: Bystander CPR “What is bystander CPR? Traditional CPR involves chest compressions to manually keep the heart pumping, and also mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to provide oxygen to the person in cardiac arrest. Bystander CPR consists of only the chest compressions. ‘They’re both important,’ says Dr. Ouchi, ‘but when cardiac arrest occurs, there’s already some oxygen left in the blood… it’s much more important to pump that blood to the brain than spend the extra seconds or minutes trying to give the patient more oxygen. So not it’s compression, compression, compression.'” Attend Roundtable and learn how to perform Bystander CPR and SAVE LIVES!!!
