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.
HOW TO CLAIM YOUR CPR CARD after completing the class
1 You will receive an email from eCards@heart.org with a link inviting you to claim your eCard online.
2 The link within the email will direct you to the Student Profile webpage, which will be prepopulated with your first name, last name, email address, eCard code, AHA Instructor name, and St. Agatha Training Center information. Adding your phone number is optional.
3 Once you have confirmed that your information is accurate, you will set up a security question and answer to access your eCard(s) in the future.
4 After setting up your security question and answer, accept the terms and conditions of the site and click “Submit.” You will be directed to fill out a brief survey about the course.
5 After you complete the survey, your eCard will be displayed. You will have 3 options to view or print it:
Save as PDF: Upon choosing your preferred size to view, you can save your eCard
to your computer for future use.
QR Code: For students with a QR code reader, you can access your eCard on a
mobile device as needed.
Printing: Your eCard can be viewed as a PDF and can be printed either wallet size
(2.5” x 3.5”) to be cut out or full size (8.5” x 11”) for easy filing.
Please note that if you do not claim your eCard, you will not be able to show proof of course
completion to your employer. If your employer requires proof of completion, you can email them a copy from the eCard landing page.
After you have accessed your eCard, you will receive an email from the AHA confirming that your eCard has been claimed. You should save this confirmation email for your records.
You can view your eCard online through the AHA’s website, www.heart.org/cpr/mycards at any time. Simply enter your first and last name and email address, or the eCard code found on your eCard. Your employer can verify your eCard at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards to confirm issuance only if you have completed steps 1-5.
