Health Classes

 

BLS for Healthcare Provider CPR  ($35.00)

This course is intended for rescuers that provide healthcare to patients in a variety of settings including in-hospital and out-of-hospital.

 

HEARTSAVER CPR ($35.00)

This course teaches the lay rescuer to respond to life-threatening emergencies such as cardiac arrest and choking in adults, children and infants.

 

Anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! The American Heart Association trains more than 12 million people in CPR annually, to equip Americans with the skills they need to perform bystander. Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. This alarming statistic could hit close to home, because home is exactly where 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur. Put very simply: The life you save with CPR is mostly likely going to be someone you love.

 

WHY LEARN CPR?

• Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease

   or other risk factors.

• Sudden cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack.

~ Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses

   in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the

   heart to suddenly stop beating.

~ A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part

   of the heart muscle is blocked. A heart attack may

   cause cardiac arrest.

• Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden

   cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of

   survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get

   CPR from a bystander.

 

Don’t be afraid; your actions can only help. If you see an unresponsive

adult who is not breathing or not breathing normally, call 911 and push hard and fast on the center of the chest.
