Be a Life Saver!
Many people are reluctant to learn or perform CPR because they think it’s too difficult or they are apprehensive about doing mouth-to-mouth. Forty-four percent of adults say they would not perform CPR because they’re not confident in their ability, according to a national American Heart Association survey conducted in 2008.
However, there’s a two-step technique called Hands-Only CPR that we should all learn. The technique involves calling 9-1-1 and pushing hard and fast in the center of the chest until professional help arrives.
“For years the survival rate from sudden cardiac arrest has been abysmal,” said Clyde Yancy, M.D., American Heart Association president. “Bystanders hold the key to increasing survival. We hope this campaign will break through the barriers people have when they see someone in cardiac arrest – so that anyone who hears this message can help save a life.”
To learn more about the technique, visit handsonlyCPR.org. This site, which was launched by the Ad Council and American Heart Association, offers valuable information and resources on the technique including an instructional video. The website also has a fun online tool called Hands Symphony where users can choose from a host of sounds created by different filmed hands to create their own track. You can send your track to friends and encourage them to create their own too.
- 1 pound white baking chocolate, divided
- 4 ounces (1/2 package) cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon Imitation Rum Extract
- Ground Nutmeg (for sprinkling)
- Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate as directed on package. Beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, nutmeg and extract in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended and smooth. Add melted chocolate; beat until well mixed. Cover. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
- Shape into 24 (about 3/4-inch) balls. Place on wax paper-lined tray. Refrigerate until ready to dip.
- Coat only 12 truffles at a time. Melt 4 ounces of the remaining chocolate in small microwavable bowl on MEDIUM, 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Using a fork, dip 1 truffle at a time into the chocolate. Place on wax paper-lined tray. Sprinkle truffles with nutmeg. Repeat with remaining 4 ounces chocolate and remaining truffles.
- Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Store truffles in refrigerator up to 1 week.
Makes 2 dozen.
Test Kitchen Tip: When dipping the truffles, do so in 2 batches (as directed above in Step 3) as the coldness of the truffles may cause the melted chocolate to harden.
