Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

CPR is the abbreviated form of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation. CPR does not necessarily restart the heart, but facilitates the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart, thereby delaying tissue death and extending chances of a successful resuscitation (revival) without permanent brain damage.

How CPR works

The air we breathe in travels to our lungs where oxygen is picked up by blood and then pumped by the heart to our tissues and organs. When a person experiences a heart attack or cardiac arrest, the heart eventually ceases to beat properly. This prevents oxygen from circulating throughout the body, rapidly killing cells and tissues.

Cardio (heart) Pulmonary (lung) Resuscitation (revive, revitalize) serves as an artificial heartbeat and an artificial respirator.

CPR may not save the victim even when performed properly, but if started within 4 minutes of cardiac arrest and defibrillation is provided within 10 minutes, a person has a 40% increased chance of survival

CPR Certification

During the training, the student learns the skills and knowledge needed to properly perform CPR/ first aid.

Online CPR training is an easy and convenient way of learning proper techniques for CPR, AED, and First Aid. Online courses offer video, image and text demonstrations so you can learn proper techniques and feel confident in your ability to perform in an emergency situation.

Adult CPR is performed on individuals over the age of 8.

Child CPR is administered to any victim between the ages of 1 to 8. The first thing to remember about Child CPR is that, cardiac arrest in children is rarely due to heart failure but rather by an injury which causes the breathing to stop first. And since children are more pliant than adults, they tend to respond to CPR much better if administered as soon as possible.

Infant CPR is administered to any victim under the age of 12 months. Infants, just as children, have a much better chance of survival if CPR is performed immediately.

Adult CPR Certification, Child CPR Certification & Infant CPR Certification are awarded to individuals who successfully complete the training courses in CPR.

Safety Training involves identification and control of hazards that one is exposed to & seek positive improvements in health and safety through education.
