    Residents have a better chance of “stayin’ alive” thanks, in part, to the Scottsdale Fire Department’s hands-only CPR classes.

    These sessions teach individuals how to perform chest compressions, use automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) and follow proper procedures.

    Common signs of unresponsiveness include not breathing and failure to react to an external rub on the chest.

    In emergency situations, individuals must critically assess the situation and act quickly.

    The individual requiring hands-only CPR must be flat on his or her back, on a hard surface.

    Performing chest compressions involve interlocking fingers, one hand on top of the other, and firmly pressing into the chest, at least two inches deep.

    The first few compressions may cause a crackling-like sound, analogous to twisting bubble wrap, but individuals must continue to press down at 100 compressions each minute.
