“Is it true that we don’t give mouth to mouth anymore?”

This is the most common question presented to our trainers. The answer is not that simple, however. “Hands Only CPR” as an alternative to providing CPR with rescue breathing (mouth to mouth) is as effective as CPR with rescue breathing for only a few minutes. LP Health Directions follows guidelines approved by the American Heart Association, The American Red Cross, and The American Safety and Health Institute, which include teaching skills for both CPR with rescue breathing and hands only CPR. Our training classes provide the skills to determine which is appropriate at the time of an emergency, increasing confidence in our students to act in an event of an emergency.
