Why CPR, AED, and First Aid Training Classes Are Important
Did you know that Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the most common cause of death in the United States? SCA is a serious condition that occurs when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions and the heart is no longer able to pump blood into the brain and vital organs. SCA can affect both children and adults. When CPR is performed and an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is administered within the first three to five minutes of someone collapsing, the victim has a 75% greater chance of survival.
CPR pumps blood to the brain and vital organs, while an AED delivers a shock to the heart that gets it to beat effectively again. CPR classes cover CPR, basic life support, and emergency scene assessment. The AED portion of the classes shows you how to operate and maintain an AED. First Aid training covers topics like responding to sudden illness and injury, breathing emergencies, and bleeding.
