(Healthcare Providers and Heartsaver Course)
BLS is required for most health care providers. Whether you are a medical professional, new parent, babysitter or simply want to be able to help someone during a medical emergency, basic life support skills can help you. The course covers infant and child CPR, one- and two-rescuer adult CPR, treatment of choking patients, heart disease prevention, and using an AED (automatic external defibrillator).
Anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. This alarming statistic could hit close to home, because home is exactly where 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur. Put very simply: The life you save with CPR is mostly likely to be someone you love.
- Four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home.
- Statistically speaking, if called on to administer CPR in an emergency, the life you save is likely to be someone at home: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
- African-Americans are almost twice as likely to experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in another public location than Caucasians, and their survival rates are twice as poor as for Caucasians.
