This 4 hour course is dedicated to life saving cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to successfully use an AED.
It will also teach you how to handle situation of foreign body airway obstruction (choking) and stroke.
Some facts about the importance of the use of an AED:
- The chance of surviving cardiac arrest is decreased by 7-10% with each minute that passes after collapse.
- Defibrillation provides the single most important therapy for the treatment of cardiac arrest in the adult patient.
- Early CPR and defibrillation within the first 3–5 minutes after collapse, plus early advanced care can result in high (greater than 50%) long-term survival rates for witnessed cardiac arrests.
- The value of early CPR by bystanders is that it can "buy time" by maintaining some blood flow to the heart and brain during cardiac arrest.
