be the beat
The American Heart Association is committed to creating the next Generation of Lifesavers™ through our Be the Beat and CPR in Schools programs. Be the Beat is a resource for teachers and school administrators that provides free tools to help start and sustain Hands-Only CPR and AED training programs in schools. Students will learn to "Be the Beat" and perform Hands-Only CPR if they see a teen or adult suddenly collapse. Since seventy percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in residential settings, if you are called on to perform CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent, or a friend.
