The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has partnered with the American Heart Association (AHA) to unveil an interactive, hands-on CPR training kiosk at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, USA.

The innovative kiosk is located in Terminal 2 (T2) and has a specially designed rubber torso that allows users to practice compressions. The kiosk provides immediate feedback about the depth and rate of compressions and proper hand placement, which influence the effectiveness of CPR. O’Hare is one of two airports in the USA that has this new, life-saving technology.

The training kiosk complements the 114 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) that are available throughout Chicago’s airport facilities as well as the Chicago HeartSave Program that provides free CPR training and instruction on how to use AEDs to airport employees and contractors.
