Compression-only CPR, performed by providing continuous chest compressions without stopping to provide ventilations, has been proven effective in treating patients with sudden cardiac arrest. This practice is effective because it circulates unused oxygen left in the patient’s lungs to the body’s vital organs. Although there’s an added benefit in providing rescue breaths, some people may find these hard to do so by performing Hands Only CPR you will still increase a person’s chance of survival and it’s definitely better than doing nothing.
