Heartsaver CPR AED Online has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
According to the 2015 Guidelines Update, CPR training helps people learn the skills and develop the confidence to provide CPR when encountering a cardiac arrest victim. And while AEDs can be used by the public regardless of whether the responder has been trained, even minimal training improves performance, timeliness, and efficacy.
AHA’s Heartsaver CPR AED course provides the knowledge and skills that may help save a life. Although much is being done to prevent death from heart problems, cardiac arrest is still one of the leading causes of death in the United States. The skills learned in this course will help you recognize cardiac arrest, get emergency care on the way quickly, and help the person until more advanced care arrives to take over.
Heartsaver courses from AHA offer: a cohesive, consistent experience for the learner, best practices to give students the best possible learning experience and help them better retain information, enhanced and realistic scenarios, while providing course and content flexibility.
