Basic CPR, AED and First Aid
Our August sixteenth, 2017 Basic CPR class certification through Georgia CPR, LLC focuses on hands on practice and scenario-based learning. The courses are taught with a relaxed, supportive environment. This results in students feeling confident and prepared to respond to a cardiac emergency. Our goal is not to intimidate or impress the student with war stories. Our goal is to empower students in making the decision to help another person in need.
The Scope of the CPR Class
The objective of a Basic CPR Class is simple. It’s objective is to know how to help a victim while waiting for an ambulance or other advanced help to arrive in an emergency medical situation. This is not a wilderness first aid course. All topics are taught with the expectation that EMS is available and can be on the way. Another aspect of the Basic CPR class is to understand the differences between very serious emergencies and those that are not.
Topics covered in Basic CPR classes include:
- Scene Safety
- Using Protective Barriers
- Checking Responsiveness
- Activating EMS
- Clearing the Airway
- Protecting the Airway
- Helping Unresponsive Patients
- Saving Choking Patients
- Checking for Breathing
- CPR for Cardiac Arrest
- Sudden Cardiac Arrest and the “Chain of Survival”
- Defibrillation Demo
- Proper use of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)
- Troubleshooting an AED
We take great pride in offering these courses at nearly half the price of the Red Cross.
