CPR CLASSES, TRAINING & CERTIFICATION IN OHIO
Is your workplace prepared for emergencies? It takes emergency medical services (EMS) an average of seven minutes to arrive at the scene. When it comes to sudden cardiac arrest, every minute counts. From the moment someone stops breathing, the body is deprived of the oxygen that it needs to survive. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), more than 356,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year. Getting the proper help quickly can mean the difference between life and death.
Ohio CPR training for the workplace provides invaluable skills that enable bystanders to perform CPR to keep the victim’s organ systems and blood circulation going until emergency medical personnel arrive. EMC provides accredited CPR training classes throughout Ohio. Cities we serve include Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron, and Dayton.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest: A Silent Killer
The statistics surrounding cardiac arrest are staggering. Each year, approximately 475,000 people die from cardiac arrest in the United States alone. Cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack. A heart attack could lead to cardiac arrest, however.
A heart attack occurs when blood supply to part of the heart is blocked. Cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the heart’s failure to pump effectively. It usually results from an electrical disturbance in the heart and causes the heart to stop beating suddenly. Cardiac arrest doesn’t just affect seniors. It can happen to anyone, at any age. When cardiac arrest occurs, it is essential to start CPR and an AED should be administered as soon as possible.
Workplace accidents can happen at any time. They typically happen when you least expect it, so it’s important for bystanders to have the skills and knowledge necessary to provide immediate medical attention until emergency medical personnel arrive.
CPR, AED, and First Aid training in the workplace equips employees with skills that they can use anytime, anywhere. Employers can take pride in knowing that they are providing their employees with the knowledge to help others in an emergency situation, no matter where they happen to be.
