  • North junior teaches CPR class

    North Oldham High School junior Trenton Fryman has a message for his fellow classmates: any CPR is better than no CPR. Twenty-five students showed up to learn Hands-Only CPR before school.

    Hands-only CPR is a two-step technique that involves calling 9-1-1 and pushing hard and fast in the center of the chest until help arrives. This simplified method of CPR requires no mouth-to-mouth breathing and does not require certification. It can also be taught in the health class curriculum with little or no cost.
