Why you should take CPR classes
You never know what might happen day to day. Unfortunately, there are scenarios that we can’t avoid and overlooking health and safety can come at a price. Having CPR training under your belt can not only save your life, but it can save your family’s life, children’s lives, and even a stranger’s life.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is the life-saving technique that helps manage the blood flow to the brain and heart in emergency situations.
Is CPR important for work life?
Many jobs of jobs these days request that you obtain a CPR certificate. Firemen, child care providers, electricians, construction workers, lifeguards, teachers, and babysitters are just some of the many jobs that require pre-CPR training. Having the skills to perform CPR at work can save lives and keeps employees aware of safety and gives employees the knowledge and confidence to perform during an emergency without confusion or fear.
Do I need CPR knowledge for myself?
Even if you don’t have a job that requires CPR training, it is still important to learn it just in case you ever find yourself in a crucial emergency situation. Studies have also shown that people that have CPR certifications feel more confident and empowered knowing that they have the potential of saving someone’s life. You never know when you will be put in a situation where you have to face someone that is choking, unresponsive, or having a cardiac arrest.
1. Check and see if the person is responsive. If they are not, go ahead and perform CPR. Make sure the person is lying on their back and kneel beside them and call 911.
2. Interlock your fingers while keeping your arms straight and start pushing on the center of the chest between the nipples. Start pushing hard and fast, about twice per second.
3. Open the person airway by tilting their head and then lifting the chin to open the airway. Let their mouth fall open slightly.
4. Watch their chest fall and remove your mouth from the person and watch to se if their chest falls.
5. Repeat chest compressions until help arrives.
