Why You Need CPR Training

Why you need CPR training, KC First Aid

Everyone needs CPR training, cites safebeat.org, to know how to respond to a cardiac or airway emergency. Imagine knowing what to do if a loved one, coworker, or stranger out in public collapses, stops breathing or has cardiac arrest. Simply put, CPR training can save a life.

During cardiac arrest, the heart stops pumping blood, and brain death occurs as soon as four minutes later. By providing CPR to the victim, you will be supplying blood to all vital organs. Did you know that the chances of survival for cardiac arrest victims doubles when CPR is started within the first two minutes?

The CDC states, “Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. One person dies every 34 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease.” These facts alone show how important it is for you to take CPR training.

What is CPR Training?

CPR is a basic life-saving technique that anyone can use in daily life. It is the recommended first class for learning first-aid methods. This course will teach the basic techniques of adult and child CPR. Students also learn to use barrier devices in CPR and giving first aid for choking in the responsive victim. The course teaches how to recognize the signs of 3 major emergencies: heart attack, stroke, and choking. Each class attendant will receive CPR Certification upon completion of this one-day training.
