What is CPR training?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency procedure used to make blood circulate through the body. When the heart stops beating, the condition is called cardiac arrest. CPR is done to help the heart pump blood as well as to restart it. However, CPR alone cannot manage cardiac arrest, Rescue breaths, medication, and defibrillation all go hand-in-hand with chest compressions.
When you look at the statistics, over 88 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest occur in the home. However, only 32 percent of these arrests receive CPR from a bystander. To remedy this, the American Heart Association and their affiliates train over 12 million rescuers each year.
Kinds of CPR training available
There are different kinds of CPR training that we offer, categorized mainly into basic and advanced training. Basic Life Support courses are short and focus on three basic CPR skills: chest compressions, rescue breaths, and defibrillation. Advanced Life Courses go beyond these basic skills, focusing on advanced medical management. Medical management covers skills used by medical professionals – such as medication administration and diagnostic exams.
