Telecommunicator CPR (T-CPR) – performing CPR with instruction from a 911 dispatcher


Kristin Flanary describes what it is like for a layperson to perform CPR with instruction from a 911 dispatcher. Kristin describes all of the things that went through her mind as a young person unexpectedly called upon to provide 10 minutes of CPR in the middle of the night, ultimately saving her husband, Will Flanary’s life. She credits her 911 telecommunicator with recognizing SCA symptoms and instructing her to initiate CPR.
