Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. More than 326,000 people in the US suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests each year. Statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a medical device that analyzes the heart’s rhythm. If necessary, it delivers an electrical shock, known as defibrillation, which helps the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
Upon completion of this class, you will be CPR and AED certified. The class covers the following in detail:
• Acting in an Emergency
• Preventing Disease Transmission
• Checking the Victim
• CPR and AED
• Recovery Position
