Actor/comedian Ken Jeong leverages his MD skills with the American Heart Association (AHA) in a special PSA. He suits up in new Stayin’ Alive video to promote Hands-Only CPR. Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, young or old, at any time. It is a leading cause of death in the U.S., and it happens when the heart abruptly stops. Hands-Only CPR (or CPR without using breaths) involves two simple steps to help an adult cardiac arrest victim:
1) Call 9-1-1
2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest until an AED arrives and is ready for use or healthcare providers take over
Ken Jeong shows how dance moves (specifically disco) can help save lives. The classic Bee Gees disco hit “Stayin’ Alive” is the perfect beat for remembering the right rate of chest compressions during Hands-Only CPR. Disco may be dead, but it’s helping keep people alive.
Ken Jeong with some serious moves. Check out his white suit like the one worn by John Travolta in the classic film “Saturday Night Fever.” Dance party in effect.
Previously, he was in Pepto Bismol commercial
