The American Red Cross has come out in support of hands only CPR. Brian Eveleth from Washington County Ambulance and CPR Instructor says this method of CPR is being taught because many people are afraid of infectious diseases and do nothing in an emergency situation.  He says doing compressions at 100 per minute will keep blood circulating to both the heart and the brain until professional help arrives.  Eveleth says it is important for all citizens to learn CPR and if you are interested in learning this revised technique, contact the Washington County Ambulance at 653-2047.
