The first 4 minutes is critical. Without oxygen, the brain starts to die at 4 minutes and is completely dead in 10 minutes. Immediate CPR can make a huge difference in a successful revival. AED (Automated External Defibrillator) use is taught with every class. Many businesses prefer to have their employees well trained in the event of an emergency.
The class lasts 2 hours. You will have done CPR 4 times before the end of class. Certification is through the American Heart Association and is good for two years. CoVid 19 precautions are taken. Individual face pieces and valves are used with face masks. BVM (bag valve masks) are also used for ventilating mannequins.
BLS CPR for healthcare providers is $40 and includes a test. Because of the abundance of hands on time, passing the test is quite easy. The new 2020 guidelines suggest a metronome and CPR coach to enhance the quality of CPR.
Adding 1st aid takes an additional hour making the class $60 for CPR/!st Aid. This covers diabetic problems, seizures, hot and cold emergencies (hyper & hypothermia), animal and insect bites including snakes, poisonous plants, opioid emergencies, heart attacks, strokes, anaphylacis, bleeding (bandaging including proper tourniquet use), splinting and neck and back injuries for fall victims.
