CPR and AED training overview
CPR and AED training programs cover cardiovascular emergencies such as cardiac arrests and injuries such as heavy bleeding.

All CPR classes include automated external defibrillation (AED) training as per the latest American Heart Association guidelines. AEDs are machines that detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to the heart.

CPR level HCP is targeted at health care providers and professionals who perform CPR in a hospital or health care facilities.

Did You Know?
After providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the victim resumes breathing and has a stable pulse, he or she is placed in a recovery position. The victim is placed on his or her side (if the victim has an injury to one side of the chest, rest him or her on the unaffected side), with one arm above the head. This facilitates good blood flow back to the heart and effecting chest expansion for breathing. It also prevents aspiration in case of vomiting.
