Description (Brief)
This wallet-size card called the "ABC's of CPR" reviews the steps for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The images of hands preforming CPR and the patient’s chest move up and down as the card is tilted back and forth. The cards were distributed to individuals and companies for their employees to carry. In its first three years of production over 225,000 cards were distributed including one sent to President Jimmy Carter. A first place award for excellence in medical education was presented to Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco by The Association of American Medical Colleges. The card was printed in four languages, English, Hebrew, Chinese and Spanish.
