AHA Employee Saves Newborn Puppy with CPR!

AHA’s very own Alicia Pederson, Science Committee Manager for Emergency Cardiovascular Care Programs and a seasoned AHA Instructor, harnessed her CPR skills to save the life of her newborn puppy. Alicia wasn’t sure if CPR would help, but she knew she had to do something, and sprung into quick action, clearing the puppy’s airway and then delivering “mouth to snout” breaths and compressions. IT WORKED! Her story inspired us all and showed us that quick action really can make a life or death difference!
