One (1) and two (2) rescuer CPR as well as choking and unconscious choking is taught for all ages (adult, child, and infant). Rescue breathing and various airway adjuncts are taught for people who might be in respiratory arrest only. This course also highlights the use of the AED and a team strategy is simulated using two (2) to four (4) people in a cardiac arrest scenario. With the use of the new CAB (compression, airway, breathing) technique assessment of cardiac profusion and pulse checks are added to verify the status of the victim to confirm that they are in cardiac arrest. Emphasis is placed on limiting delays and interruptions to CPR to maximize success in overall recovery and survivability. Duration: 4 hours bls for BLS healthcare providers
According to the American Heart Association (AHA) only six (6) percent of heart attack victims live because most people that witness the heart attack do not know how to perform CPR. It's simple and easy to do and the course is designed for lay rescuers or non-medical people who normally would not have the skills of a medical worker. The goal of the course is to simplify the skills in assessment and minimize the level of technique to be successful. Hands-only, one rescuer, and conscious choking is taught for all ages. Duration: 3.5hours
AHA dictates that the maximum number of attendees for any independent instructor is eight (6) participants. Due to this regulation and often space limitations, we do offer split classes for businesses or schools with large groups. Please contact me by e-mail or phone to negotiate dates, times, and rates.
