Chicago Onsite CPR Training
Our Chicago, Illinois onsite CPR training saves lives. When a person is going into cardiac arrest, life-saving procedures like CPR must be implemented as quickly as possible. The sooner the CPR process and other life-saving measures are begun, the better the outcome for the individual.
Onsite safety training is just one of the many services EMC offers. EMC training classes can cover CPR, AED use, first aid, how to protect yourself against a bloodborne pathogen, and how to stop bleeding. Some of our courses can gain your participants a certification in the techniques we teach — an added benefit.
Benefits of Our Chicago IL Onsite CPR Training
There are many benefits to having onsite CPR training at your office, retail location, government building, religious institution, or just about any kind of workplace. Two of the main benefits are knowledge and confidence. Knowing how to perform CPR isn’t just essential in an emergency situation, but can even have a positive effect on the person who learns it — because this lifesaving knowledge really is power!
If someone should have a cardiac event during office hours, it’s good to know that there is always someone on the scene who has the training to assist until medical professionals arrive. Employers who offer their staff this type of training can foster higher morale: After all, when employees know their leadership genuinely cares for them and wants to empower them to help others, it can help create a more positive work environment.
CPR training is vital. In America, thousands of people have heart attacks every day. However, a heart attack does not have to lead to death. If you work with the public, such as in a retail location or restaurant, knowing how to perform CPR correctly is almost a necessary skill.
What You Need to Know about CPR
CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and it is just that: restarting the heart and lungs after a cardiac event. It is a method of artificially pumping someone’s heart and expanding his or her lungs. Another human being or machine has to perform the functions of their body for them until the heart or lungs begin working again, which they can.
To perform CPR, you must compress the chest of the victim. This compression forces blood from the heart to the body. If the victim is not breathing, you must get oxygen into their body by breathing your breath into their month and forcing it into their lungs.
This process may sound difficult and stressful, but EMC can train anyone to give CPR. While doing the life-saving measures, it is important to know how hard to compress the chest and where to apply the pressure. EMC’s onsite training will teach you how to force air into someone else’s lungs, and what steps you have to take to make the air move. We will provide dummies to practice on and help you learn the technique and counts needed to perform the move at the most effective rate, so the most oxygen and blood gets to the victim’s brain and body.
Chicago Onsite AED Training and Equipment
CPR AED first aid is another technique EMC can train your employees in. AED stands for automated external defibrillator, and it is a machine that uses electricity to help jolt a person’s heart into starting again. We offer a variety of AED products to keep your workplace in compliance and potentially save lives.
Some CPR AED machines will help you count compressions and give you a pattern to follow. This technology has made the process more comfortable, and it needs to be as easy as possible in these stressful situations.
Having an AED machine in an office environment can provide a sense of calm, giving you the assurance that in the event something does happen, there is life-saving equipment onsite to help with the process.
EMC offers AED equipment that will walk anyone through the process, how to use the pads, and operate the machine. Some of the AED products EMC carries come with digital onscreen instructions about where to place the pads and when to start the shock. Feel free to contact us about the various AED machines that are available so we can help you choose the right one for your workplace.
No matter which AED machine you choose, the technology has become so advanced in these life-saving devices that anyone can use them. You do not need any kind of medical background to do CPR or use the CPR AED machines. That is why they are essential in office situations: You never know who will need to be available to save a life!
