Train to be a Superhero: Learn CPR
When you picture a superhero, you may picture overdeveloped muscles and a flashy costume. However, real-life superheroes are usually just people who are in the right place, with the right skills, at the right time.
CPR Education Is for Everyone
Some people are required to take CPR courses. CPR certification for healthcare providers, lifeguards, and childcare providers is usually a job qualification. While these people may seem more likely to encounter life-or-death scenarios, the reality is that the need for CPR most often occurs at home.
You may never face a situation where your knowledge of CPR could mean the difference between life and death for another person. However, if you do, you want to have that knowledge in order to save a life.
What is CPR?
CPR is cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It is an emergency procedure that can help people if their heart stops beating (cardiac arrest). CPR:
Can be performed anywhere
Does not require any special equipment
Doubles or triples someone’s chances for survival
Where Can I Learn CPR?
You can learn CPR in local CPR classes, which focus only on CPR, or in first aid classes.
The American Heart Association Chain of Survival
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), there are six crucial steps in the chain of survival following a cardiac arrest.
- Recognizing cardiac arrest and calling for emergency help
- EMS intervention
- Post cardiac arrest care
- Support and rehabilitation
Who should learn CPR?
Because cardiac arrest can happen anytime, anywhere, the more people who know CPR, the fewer people will die from cardiac arrest. As a result, we think that everyone should have CPR training.
CPR classes are especially important for:
- Expectant parents and babysitters to learn pediatric CPR
There are also special types of CPR education geared towards specific populations, such as CPR First Aid AED Certification and CPR Instructor Certification.
