CPR/AED

CPR is an emergency procedure used to revive an adult, child or infant who has stopped breathing and/or whose heart isn’t beating. Such incidences can occur following drowning, heart attacks or strokes, severe allergic reactions and electrocutions, or may be due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

SCA is caused by problems with the heart’s electrical system causing irregular heartbeats resulting in the heart stopping. If SCA is the emergency, once CPR has been performed and the heart is beating again, the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can restore a normal beat to a heart. These portable AED devices are often found in public places, such as shopping malls, golf courses, businesses, airports, airplanes, casinos, convention centers, hotels, sports venues and schools.

This OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) approved course gives you, wherever you are, the knowledge and skills necessary to recognize and care for sudden illnesses and injuries such as heart attacks or strokes, drowning, severe allergic reactions, electrocutions or Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Instruction includes Adult, Child and Infant CPR and AED training. A text is included in the cost of the course. Upon successful completion, you will receive a 2-year certification from the American Red Cross.
