Think fast: A person sitting near you on the bus, in a restaurant or at your office collapses from sudden cardiac arrest. What do you do?

After someone calls 911, the person needs immediate CPR to save his life, but according to the American Heart Association (AHA), fewer than one-third of people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public place get that help.

To raise those numbers, the AHA developed the Hands-only CPR app. Using video demonstrations, the app guides users through the proper way to administer CPR - by pressing hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the disco song, "Stayin' Alive."

Download the app for iPhone or Android and learn how to save a life.
