A great introduction to CPR is Vinnie Jones video demonstrating CPR to the tune of 'Staying Alive' - have a look for yourself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILxjxfB4zNk. This video has helped to promote the importance of early CPR without giving 'mouth to mouth' otherwise known as 'rescue breaths'. Ask your friends if they know to 'to do a Vinnie'!
