Continuous Chest Compression CPR—University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center

Every three days, more Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest than the number who died in the 9-11 attacks. You can lessen this recurring loss by learning Continuous Chest Compression CPR, a hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. It’s easy and does not require mouth-to-mouth contact, making it more likely bystanders will try to help, and it was developed at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

"This video is worth sharing," said Gordon A. Ewy, MD, director of the UA Sarver Heart Center and one of the research pioneers who developed this method.

Solution Focused Parent-Teacher Conferences

Traditional conferences focus on the student's deficits, issues, and problems. By focusing on these, we tend to amplify them and make them worse. The assumption is that "you get more of what you focus on." Instead, we need to focus on what the child, parents, and teachers will be doing more when the student is back on track.
