LAU-CSC and Hands-Only CPR

In line with its mission to serve the community, the LAU Clinical Simulation Center (LAU-CSC) has recently collaborated with the NGO “Youth Organization Heart Awareness- YOHAN to launch the Hands-Only CPR program, a discipline of the American Heart Association designed to raise awareness in schools, and the community about sudden cardiac death. Until date, around one thousand Grade 10, 11 and 12 students have been trained in this discipline in various schools throughout Lebanon. Trainers are the CSC AHA-International Training Center certified instructors, with our Med students during their rotation in Primary Care.

Hands-Only CPR is easy and can save lives. If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, just remember these 2 steps:

  1. Call the Red Cross (140) or assign a specific person to do so 
  2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the disco song “Stayin’ Alive” until help arrives.

​​For more info, visit heart.org/handsonlycpr and watch a one-minute training video, which provides an easy-to-learn way of performing Hands-Only CPR.
