From: The Yuma Sun
You see someone collapse and you wonder if you can help. You're not certified in CPR and hesitate to perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

The American Heart Association now recommends that untrained bystanders and medical personnel alike begin resuscitation efforts with chest compressions only.
