Beaumont HouseCall Podcast: The Omicron Variant

Episode Overview

You don’t need special certification or formal training to perform hands-only CPR, but you do need education. If a cardiac arrest happens to someone near you, don't be afraid. Just be prepared.


On this episode of the HouseCall Podcast, Dr. Shajahan invites Jennifer Shea, manager of the student heart check program, to talk about how you could save someone’s life through CPR, the use of AEDs and the importance of heart checks for student athletes.

  “Follow these steps if you see someone in cardiac arrest: call 911 right away, and then give CPR if you see that someone has labored breathing [and/ or] you see that they’re unresponsive. What you can do is push down hard and fast in the center of the chest at a rate of 100-120 beats per minute. This is the same rhythm as the songs Staying Alive or Baby Shark. Find what works for you. And then continue giving CPR until a medical professional arrives.”
