News, Public Service Announcements, Public Health: Hands Symphony and CPR Reminder

Here’s a wonderful public service announcement from

American Heart Association

Hands Symphony

This is an interactive visualization… choose the style of music, and click any pair of hands to create (or lessen) a full sound.  Each set of hands adds its’ own unique contribution to the ‘symphony’.

At the bottom of this page on the AHA website, there is a 1.3 minute video showing a demonstration of how to initiate and continue hands-only CPR while awaiting medical assistance.

Well-done public service announcement, American Heart Association!
