Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States every year. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a combination of chest compressions and breathing given to victims that are considered to be in cardiac arrest.
CPR helps to provide critical blood flow, oxygen and delivery of energy nutrients to the heart and brain, until the person regains consciousness or Emergency Medical Services (EMS) or professional help arrives on the scene.
In this way, immediate CPR plus defibrillation (defibrillation is an electrical impulse that eliminates abnormal, rapid heartbeats) within three to five (3-5) minutes of collapse, may reduce chances of sudden cardiac arrest and permanent damage.
This course has been designed to help you acquire the skills you will need to effectively respond to in-hospital and out-of-hospital situations.
