CPR & AED

Course Overview

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is used in emergency situations on a person when a person has suffered cardiac arrest, or is in a life-threatening condition and who are not breathing.

CPR is implemented when the patient has an undetectable heartbeat and is not breathing—include rescue breathing and chest compressions.

Using an AED ( De-Fib)  allows trained personnel to use the equipment on a person who is not breathing, is unconscious, and appears to be in sudden cardiac arrest. This course will provide all the techniques required to undertake such a process either at work or during your daily life.
