What is ACLS?
AED Training (Automated External Defibrillator) training offers many things. CPR and AED training are two different approaches in the process of saving the life of someone suffering from cardiac arrest. The acronym “CPR” means cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which is the act of repeatedly compressing a man or woman’s chest in order to keep their blood pumping throughout their body. CPR is, in essence, a manual heartbeat, keeping vital organs alive even after the person’s heart has stopped beating. While many people are already familiar with CPR, its counterpart – AED – often goes unnoticed. Most classes are actually offered as CPR AED training, or at least explain the use of the AED in the course of their instruction. “AED” stands for automated external defibrillator and there is a big difference between CPR and AED training even though we could cover both in the same AED class. Unlike CPR which only pumps blood to vital organs, AED means using a machine that can restart the heart. In this respect, one could say that our classes should be termed “AED CPR training” since the AED is a much more important factor to a cardiac arrest victim’s survival. When a person goes into cardiac arrest, their heart has stopped beating. This means that vital organs, such as the brain, will begin to die within minutes if they do not continue to receive blood and oxygen. This is why anyone who is able to provide assistance should step in quickly to administer CPR. AED is about getting the heart to reboot itself and begin to pump again.
