COVID-19 Update:

Our medical community is working under intense stress caring for those infected with COVID-19, in addition to those with other medical needs. This is a critical time for each of us to take care of ourselves. Eat well, get a good night's sleep, exercise, practice stress reduction, be grateful, wash your hands and practice social distancing. Heart disease remains the #1 cause of death for both men and women and can increase during stressful times. 70% of cardiac arrests happen in the home. We want you to be prepared to save a life with HandsOnly CPR.


At 8:00pm local time, go on your balcony, open your windows or front door, and cheer for the healthcare workers on the front lines of this pandemic. #stayhome #flattenthecurve #covid19

Across the globe people are opening up their windows every night at 8pm to clap for healthcare workers. We are encouraging people to set their clocks at 8pm to reflect and thank those on the front line. Help us acknowledge our amazing front lines by sharing your story on social media. #solidarityat8 #healthcareheroes #nyphospital #handsonlycpr

“As a cardiologist, I have been frustrated learning of athletes dying on the playing field unnecessarily and resuscitating people brought in to our ER with no brain viability – because people do not know what to do and it’s so simple. We have to change this.”
