Heartsaver First Aid,
CPR & AED
The American Heart Association's Heartsaver First Aid, CPR & AED is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage a first aid, choking or sudden cardiac arrest emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services arrives. In this course, students learn skills such as how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, allergic reaction (Epi Pen), shock and other first aid emergencies. This course also teaches adult CPR and AED use.
Hands on CPR is practiced with good compressions being stressed; students leave with a renewed confidence in their ability to save a life and make a difference. A Heartsaver First Aid, CPR & AED student workbook is included in this course.
With nearly 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests occurring outside the hospital, it is important that employers offer CPR and AED training for their employees to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest emergency.
