What is CPR?
We offer CPR Training Classes in our Fremont, California, facility as well as at our Dublin and Danville / San Ramon satellite locations. But what is CPR? CPR stands for ‘Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation’ and is an emergency life-saving procedure performed when a person’s heart stops beating. Immediate CPR given to a victim can double or triple chances that they survive after a cardiac arrest or ‘heart attack’ as it is commonly called. CPR aims to keep the blood flow active, even partially, and extends the timeline until trained medical personnel can arrive on scene. Knowing CPR and being certified in CPR means that you will be able to provide this life-saving service. Here are the basic steps as explained by the American Heart Association:
- Recognize that a cardiac arrest is occurring and call 911 to summon medical aid immediately.
- Begin early CPR as provided and instructed in our CPR training classes.
- Begin rapid defibrillation.
- Start basic and advanced emergency medical services.
- Provide advanced life support and post-cardiac arrest care.
According to the American Heart Association, this five-step process or ‘Chain of Survival’ can improve the chances of survival and recovery for victims of cardiac arrest.
