CPR Training for NYC Charter Schools
CPR Training for NYC Charter Schools is available via our CPR training. EMC is a nationwide CPR training company based in New York. Our trainers teach onsite CPR classes at charter schools throughout NYC. We serve Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and surrounding areas. We focus on teaching hands-on classes that provide teachers and operations staff with the skills and confidence to recognize sudden cardiac arrest and perform CPR.
EMC empowers students and educators at NYC charter schools to learn CPR and save lives. Our onsite instructors teach CPR, AED use, choking relief, first aid, and more. Participants learn how to respond to an array of medical emergencies.
Our onsite CPR training for NYC charter schools meets the CPR/AED training requirements for NYC DOE with classes and certifications offered through the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) and American Heart Association (AHA). We have experience training groups of anywhere from 10 to 100+ people. We can also accommodate groups that are required or prefer to practice social distancing.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest: A Silent Killer
Each year, more than 350,000 people suffer from sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital setting. Sudden cardiac arrest is a life-threatening emergency characterized by an abrupt and unexpected loss of heart function. Only about 10 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims survive.
Sudden cardiac arrest can be fatal if it is not treated in minutes. It is thought to be a leading cause of death in young athletes, but it can also affect young people who are not involved in organized sports.
When CPR is performed immediately after the heart stops beating, blood flows to the brain and other vital organs, doubling or tripling a person’s chances of survival. While rare, sudden cardiac arrest can also affect children and teens and can be fatal if CPR with an AED isn’t administered quickly.
While our primary target is to train teachers and administrators, we also offer hands-only CPR classes to students. Teaching young people CPR is a great way to spread life-saving knowledge because they can disseminate the information and its importance to others. The more comfortable people there are doing CPR, the better the outcomes.
The Importance of AEDs in Schools
EMC has also worked with charter schools to help put life-saving AEDs in place. AEDs, or automated external defibrillators, are portable devices that check the heart’s rhythm and send an electrical shock to the heart to restore a normal rhythm.
The hospital survival rate of students who suffer from sudden cardiac arrest in a school with an AED is roughly 70%. In the overall population of school-aged children, the survival rate is only 8%.
EMC offers AED packages for charter schools in NYC that include an AED, medical oversight, and AED program management. We help you find the best placement for an AED in your school, ensuring that it is in a prominent and public location. We sell AEDs from leading brands like HeartSine, Philips, Cardiac Science, Defibtech, Zoll, and Physio-Control.
