How quickly can you save a life?
Heart disease is the top killer of Texans. Four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home, and knowing how to perform CPR can often make the difference in saving a life.
El Paso Baptist Clinic is proud to be selected as one of the hosts for the Texas Two-Step, a statewide initiative that teaches hands-only CPR. At this event, participants learn how to act quickly in the event of a cardiac emergency by following two easy steps: 1) Call 911 and 2) Initiate hands-only CPR. This is our second year hosting this event in El Paso, and we’re proud of the opportunity to teach hands-only CPR to members of the El Paso community.
At Texas Two-Step events, attendees watch a video about hands-only CPR, and then medical students from all 11 of Texas’s medical schools teach the attendees how to perform hands-only CPR in a 5 minute training session. In 2016, over 650 medical students trained over 4,200 individuals in hands-only CPR. This year, 750 students from Texas’s medical schools have trained over 6,500 people in the life-saving technique. The goal is to train 10,000 people per year.
