CPR Training

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is one of the most basic forms of training an individual can receive to assist a victim during an emergency.  Understanding how CPR can be effective during an emergency is important.  Training in CPR can make a big difference in the survival rate of a victim. 

Below are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about CPR.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is the process of using chest compressions along with breaths to restore a victim’s heartbeat and breathing.  CPR is performed when a victim has stopped breathing and he or she has no pulse.  CPR provides a continuous flow of oxygen and blood throughout the body.  Our brains can only survive 5 minutes without oxygen without doing permanent damage.  CPR can double the survival rate of a victim that has no pulse and has stopped breathing.

What are the current CPR guidelines?

Currently, the American Heart Association recommends that a responder use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation along with chest compressions to perform proper CPR.  The AHA guidelines recommend two breaths to 30 chest compressions.   Of course, the AHA guidelines are updated every 5 years to increase the rate of survival from using CPR.   If you are a responder and you are unable or unwilling to provide breaths to the victim, then the AHA recommends doing a chest compressions only method.  The chest compressions only method still gives the victim a fighting chance at survival. 

What is the purpose of CPR Training?

CPR is a simple procedure that can be performed by anyone, but with proper training the responder has a better chance of helping the victim to survive.  Being prepared for any situation whether it is an emergency or non-emergency is important.  CPR Training is one of the most basic methods of rescue that any individual could be prepared for.  Anyone can be a victim of drowning, sudden cardiac arrest, or other medical condition which can cause the heart to stop.  With CPR Training, a responder will learn how to perform effective chest compressions to keep blood and oxygen flowing to the brain and to give breaths that keep oxygen in the lungs.
