Having an American Red Cross CPR certification offers numerous benefits that can help you save someone’s life. CPR – or cardiopulmonary resuscitation – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple the chances of survival after cardiac arrest. In addition to CPR certification, first aid classes are designed to help non-medical professionals provide assistance in times of crisis. These classes allow you to gain an understanding of first aid best practices for a wide range of conditions. These two combined will teach you important skills that can save someone’s life.
Who Should Have a CPR Certification?
We believe that every parent, guardian, caretaker for the elderly, bus driver, camp counselor, teacher, and more should know CPR and first aid. It turns out that 85% of cardiac arrests happen at home. If something happens to a loved one, it’s important to be able to help them while you wait for emergency responders to arrive.
