Dayton airport unveils new CPR training kiosk


Travelers can now learn how to save a life before they hop on their next plane at the Dayton airport.

The Dayton International Airport unveiled its new hands-only CPR training kiosk at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday. The interactive kiosk gives travelers the opportunity to learn CPR in under five minutes. The kiosk will be located in Concourse A, and features an interactive touch-screen, brief video and gives the user the opportunity to do a practice session with a rubber torso.

The airport worked with the Miami Valley Division of the American Heart Association to bring the kiosk to the hub, and the project is also sponsored by the Heart Institute of Dayton.

“Most of cardiac arrests that occur outside the hospital happen in public places like airports,” said Dr. David Joffe, cardiologist and president of the Heart Institute of Dayton. “Having Hands-Only CPR education at an international airport will train people in this lifesaving skill.”

About 90 percent of cardiac arrest fatalities occur primarily because bystanders do not know how to start CPR or they don’t want to do something wrong, according to the American Heart Association.
