This training is guidance for Basic Life Support.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death among adults in the United States. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) dramatically increases the chance of survival for a victim suffering from SCA.
CPR is a combination of chest compressions and breaths and provides critical blood flow and oxygen to the heart and brain. If CPR is started within three to five (3-5) minutes of collapse, it increases a victim’s chance of survival and reduces the chance of permanent damage.
Our CPR training follows the most recent and updated 2015 Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and AHA guidelines, and has been designed to help you acquire the skills you will need to effectively respond in an emergency situation.
