CPR and AED
Trainees are introduced to the concept of Basic Life Support (BLS) with CPR and AED classes. BLS was created by the American Heart Association to serve as a guide in providing compressions and defibrillation to victims of cardiac arrest. Compressions that are started within the first 3-5 minutes of collapse have been shown to increase the survival rate of victims.
Basic First Aid
Basic first aid classes cover a variety of emergency situations such as bleeding, choking, and seizure emergencies. The most popular topic covered in first aid classes is the Heimlich maneuver, used during various choking emergencies. Variations of this maneuver for one or two-person rescue, for pregnant victims, and for children as covered in the first aid class.
