Introduction Video:

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR training and knowledge help bystanders to save the lives of sudden cardiac arrest patients as and when they encounter them. Every second matters more to save a patient’s life as one learns CPR/AED course. Students learn to use an AED with the right steps and at the right time using this online certification course. It increases, and at times, even doubles the chances of survival for a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victim or patient. 

One learns to be more than just a bystander through comprehensive online CPR certification classes, including procedures of performing chest compressions and 2 rescue breaths on adults. This procedure improves the required blood flow and oxygen to various parts of the patient’s body, including the brain and the heart.

From the AHA-compliant CPR/AED course, you learn that CPR must be fast and easy to start within 3-5 minutes of the collapse of the SCA patient. Such an accurate response will reduce the possibility of any permanent damage to the patient’s health.

This online CPR training course at American CPR Care Association follows updated 2020 Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and AHA guidelines. OSHA-trained experts have designed it entirely to help you acquire the skills to respond effectively in any medical emergency like SCA, gasping, choking, or more. Learn this course and many others at your pace.
