After Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field, demand for CPR lessons skyrocketed



Indianapolis, Indiana – Staff from Ascension St. Vincent and the American Heart Association collaborated to meet the demand for CPR training.

Damar Hamlin, a safety for the Buffalo Bills, passed out while playing against the Cincinnati Bengals, which attracted interest in the matter.

Jayne Stone has been a CPR instructor for over 20 years and teaches life-saving techniques. She claimed that anyone who wishes to learn this life-saving skill, including new parents, grandparents, and babysitters, can use it.

“We are aiming for 100 to 120 beats per minute. And there are several songs out there. ‘Staying Alive’ is the most popular and encouraging song for us to use during CPR,” she said.

The 2.5-hour classes will teach Hoosiers the differences between CPR performed with and without breathing.

“We encourage anything ages 12 and older to sign up,” Stone said.

Additionally, Ascension St. Vincent provides CPR instruction in Spanish.
