On Wednesday, The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) and the American Heart Association unveiled a new hands-only CPR kiosk that has the ability to train and test travelers in bystander CPR in about five minutes.
The kiosk, located in the Central Terminal, includes a touch screen display with video instruction and tutorials, followed by an interactive practice session and test.
It even features a rubber practice mannequin to simulate CPR and give users feedback on the strength of their check compression and hand placement. Users can choose to take the course in English and Spanish.
Sea-Tac is the first location in Washington to feature the hands-only CPR training kiosk.
Randy Krause, Port of Seattle Fire Chief, hopes it will encourage more people to learn the lifesaving technique.
