Would you like to brush up on your First Aid skills? Do you need CPR certification for your job? Or would you like to know how to help if you see someone in need of CPR? Did you know there is a new, American Heart Association-approved way to help someone who has collapsed, without using mouth-to-mouth breathing techniques?
That American Heart Association states that a sudden cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival fall 7 percent to 10 percent for every minute that bystander CPR is not provided, until defibrillation.
Upland Hills Health is holding an American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid, CPR and AED (Automated Extended Defibrillator) class on Tuesday, August 16th. The class will cover First Aid, CPR and AED basics, to help those from infant to adult, as well as a hands-only technique called CCR.
This opportunity will be held from 8 am to 2 pm in the Education Room at Upland Hills Health. The cost is $60 per person, including text.
Upland Hills Health regularly offers CPR classes for all levels of providers, professional and lay responder; call 930-7165 or visit uplandhillshealth.org for more information.
To sign up for the August 16th Heartsaver course, please contact Amber at 930-7165.
