Helping hands enhance readiness

Airmen of the 932nd Airlift Wing helped each other adjust techniques during a Unit Training Assembly, as they refreshed CPR skills. The letters CPR stand for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and when a person stops breathing, or perhaps their heart stops beating effectively, this lifesaving technique is used to restore oxygenated blood flow to the vital organs quickly. Basic life saving skills (BLS) were taught methodically, step by step, with 932nd AW instructors watching during Emergency Medical Technician training, inside the 932nd Medical Group. This included proper procedures for patient assessment and trauma treatment in a special class held recently at Scott Air Force Base, Ill. The 932nd Medical Group is one of four groups under the 932nd Airlift Wing, a 22nd Air Force unit in Illinois, and part of the Air Force Reserve Command. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col.
