What is it.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a method coined to massage the heart organ between the sternum and the spinal. The heart may have stopped beating because of a heart attack, near drowning, poisoning, choking, or other cause. CPR is a practical skill first recorded being used by the Roman's. In the 1960's the American Hear Association (AHA) marketed the concept. AHA provides CPR guidelines. AHA is a video based watch CPR only program. In order to learn life saving first aid skills we recommend CPR and First Aid certification programs that are facilitated by Emergency First Responders who teach and train.
Can it work for you.
Studies have shown a business that maintains regular CPR & First Aid training has significantly "less" loss of revenue do to employee illness and many receive benefits of lower insurance rates, saving some up to 17% annually over same businesses who don't maintain certifications. There are many different kinds of training and quality of a training can vary greatly. We encourage you to invest your time and money the best way possible.
History of CPR.
As of 2006 a number of people seeking secondary source of income have became CPR instructors. Because they have no EMS experience, they often start out as volunteer instructors for larger market moguls like AHA etc... This is a great opportunity for the non-experienced instructor and an even better opportunity for these marketing moguls (free or cheep labor means higher profit margins). Unfortunately, it also means the quality of a CPR class by the AHA or ARC can vary significantly. To the credit of AHA and ARC they saw the issues related to their instructors lack of experience and generated new AHA instructor training model. That is to insist all AHA & ARC employed instructors use the watch a DVD video and practice to the DVD, skills practice. By doing that they have removed the need to teach.
