CPR, AED and First Aid Certification
What is CPR and AED?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency, lifesaving procedure that is preformed after cardiac rest. The technique involves chest compression's, often with artificial ventilation, in an effort to keep oxygenated blood flowing to keep the vital organs alive and to extend the opportunity for a successful resuscitation once a trained medical staff arrives on site. CPR can double the chances of survival after a persons heart has stop. CPR will not restart the beat of the heart; an automated external defibrillator (AED) is required to deliver an electrical shock to the heart in attempt to restart it.
What if First Aid?
First aid refers to the immediate treatment of an individual that is injured or ill. A first aid course prepares individuals to respond in emergency situations to provide general medical attention to both life threatening and non-life threatening situations. This can include wound care, to treating hypothermia and performing CPR.

Why is CPR and AED important?
CPR gives you the unique gift of being able to save lives to those who have just suffered from a heart attack or a sudden cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrests are the leading causes of death in adults. Each year, more than 325,000 cases are reported. Those who know CPR can increase the survival rate of victims by more than 40% because each minute that treatment is delayed, the survival chances of the victim gets reduced by 10%. Almost 90% of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests do not live. 70% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. Only about 46% of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help that they need before professional help arrives.
