Would you be interested in taking a class designed to teach adult, child and infant CPR/AED as well as life-saving efforts for both responsive and unresponsive choking victims (and possibly first aid)? If so, please email (or leave a message at 570-998-2836) by Monday, May 13. After finding out how many people are interested, I will be in touch about the date, time, and place for the class.

Thank you!

CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) is a life-saving measure used when someone is in cardiac failure / respiratory distress.   The class will teach you how to determine if a patient is not breathing, or experiencing agonal breaths and the steps to initiate CPR.  CPR consists of activating the emergency response system (911), chest compressions, breaths and the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).  The brain begins to die about 6-10 minutes after the heart stops due to lack of oxygen.  This class will teach you how to keep oxygenated blood flowing to the brain as well as shock the heart back into rhythm.  The sooner CPR and AED usage is initiated outside of a hospital setting, the better the chance of survival for the patient.

The class, or first time students, will run about 4 hours.  The only cost will be $8.00/student to pay for their CPR card which will be issued within a couple of weeks following the class.  The card is good for 2 years.
