What Is CPR?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a combination of rescue breathing and chest compressions delivered to victims thought to be in cardiac arrest. When cardiac arrest occurs, the heart stops pumping blood. CPR can support a small amount of blood flow to the heart and brain to "buy time" until normal heart function is restored or until emergency personnel arrives.
Who Should Learn CPR?
Quite simply, anyone and everyone should learn CPR. Would you know how to respond if a co-worker or family member needed emergency treatment? Rather you are at home or work, we can teach you the skills needed to help save a life during an emergency situation.
What is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)?
An automated external defibrillator, or AED for short, is a portable device that’s used to deliver an electrical current to a heart that is experiencing irregular, infrequent or absent heart rhythms. Using an AED can literally be the difference between life and death for someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
