What We Do
CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest. CPR consists of rescue breathing, which works to provide oxygen to the lungs, and chest compressions, which help to keep the oxygenated blood flowing until breathing is restored and the heart resumes beating. The need for CPR can result from events like a heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest, drowning or an electric shock. While people in some occupations are required to have CPR training, everyone can benefit from learning how to properly perform CPR.
Cardio CPR offer training in different CPR courses. We are professionals with many years of experience in healthcare. We train different groups of individuals from different backgrounds and profession.
Our Course Types
Our courses are broadly divided into:
- Heart Savers
2 Year Certification Validity
While adults can suffer from choking, blocked airways, drowning incidents, and other problems, most adults need CPR when they experience cardiac arrest. Usual steps include: call 911, check for a pulse, provide rescue breaths, provide compression etc. while waiting for emergency services to arrive.
Standard First Aid
This training allows average people to respond to a wide assortment of common, everyday conditions making them an invaluable resource for on-the-spot emergencies. People need this training due to work requirements or they want more knowledge to respond to emergencies at home.
Time is very important when dealing with an unconscious child who is not breathing. Permanent brain damage and death can occur in few minutes without oxygen. Steps include: check for responsiveness, call 911, open the airway, check for breathing, give rescue breaths, scan for sever bleeding etc.
An AED is crucial towards regaining the natural rhythm of the heartbeat as well as restarting the patient’s heart. After performing CPR and if the patient is still non-responsive an AED should be implemented. If the AED does not bring the patient back to consciousness CPR should be re-administered.
An airway obstruction is a blockage in any part of the airway. Children have a higher risk of obstruction by foreign objects than adults. CPR is performed when the person is unable to breathe and has lost consciousness. It keeps oxygenated blood flowing to the brain until emergency services arrive.
While first aid training covers the basics, an infection control course delves deeper into how to handle an emergency situation. You’ll learn how to survey the scene of the trauma and assess the best way to safely handle the emergency while limiting the risk of exposure. Healthcare workers are exposed to blood on a regular basis.
In addition to the courses above, the Heart Savers program comprises the following courses.
The Heimlich maneuver is performed when someone is still conscious. It involves positioning yourself behind the person who is choking (standing), placing your arms around their waist and putting your fist just above the person’s belly button. You then grab this fist with your opposite hand and perform fast upward thrusts with your fist repeatedly to push the lodged object out of the airway.
Seizures are triggered by excessive electrical activity within brain. Results in uncontrolled muscle convulsions of the body. Generally, seizures happen without warning. Breathing may seem absent. Control of the bladder may be lost, and the person may vomit. Most seizures last only a short time, and stop without any special treatment. If response and breathing are absent after a seizure stops begin CPR and get an AED if one is available.
This course will teach you how to enhance and strengthen all of the systems used to maintain your balance. It is designed to help participants identify fall risk factors, manage concerns about falls, learn how to prevent falls, performing daily activities safely, home and community safety tips, and community resources for staying fit. It includes pre- and post-testing of balance.
Gail Belt Transfer
A gait belt is an assistive device which can be used to help safely transfer a person from a bed to a wheelchair, assist with sitting and standing, and help with walking around. It is secured around the waist to allow a caregiver to grasp the belt to assist in lifting or moving a person. When used properly, the belt protects the care recipient from falling and also protects the caregiver from injuring his or her back as they lift or move the care recipient.
Why You Should Take this Training
CPR Training is a basic requirement in many institutions. Our daily lives and the things we do make it necessary to be equipped with this skill in the event of an incident. It is the basic first aid provided in relevant cases even before the ambulance arrives. Your CPR training and certificate is a requirement in institutions including:
- Home Health Institutions
- Nursing Home
- Hotels and Restaurants
- Hair Salon / Barber Shop
- At Home (family / Individual)
Our CPR certificates (issued by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Red Cross) is guaranteed acceptance in all these institutions across the country.
