Take the CPR Challenge
The 2010 AHA Guidelines emphasize the importance of performing high quality CPR in order to improve outcomes from sudden cardiac arrest, but how do you know if your rate and depth are where they need to be for a full two minutes?
The HeartStart Express CPR Challenge seeks to educate Texans on how to respond to sudden cardiac arrest, a leading killer of Americans. When a teen or adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, survival depends on getting CPR from someone nearby. Immediate CPR from a bystander can double or triple the chance of survival.
Schedule a CPR challenge with your HeartStart representative. We will bring everything needed to conduct the challenge and can give about 50 people the opportunity to compete.
Generally, a challenge runs about 4 hours and can give about 50 people the opportunity to compete. We will provide posters for you to inform staff of the upcoming challenge. You should choose a public place to hold the challenge or it can be held at our office a lot of friendly competition generates enthusiasm and a non-threatening atmosphere. Open the competition to all who wish to test their skills, nurses, physicians and ancillary staff.
Now just show up and watch the fun while your staff learns about the challenge of delivering good CPR!
Now, more then ever, CPR certification is a skill that everyone should have. With today’s busy lifestyle, online CPR training has become most convenient. CPR courses are available through authorized online classes and they are a lot simpler. Although you may have been CPR certified in the past, your certification needs to be renewed every two years to meet the most updated CPR, ECC and American Heart Association guidelines. So remember a CPR refresher course always keeps you most current with the needed skills.
Parents should especially receive child and infant CPR certification in the event of an emergency at home. CPR courses are especially necessary in May and at the beginning of June each year, as this is when people begin to populate pools and hit the beaches. It is better to take a simple online CPR class then to regret not knowing what to do in the event of an emergency. The knowledge gained in a CPR training course could make a world of a difference to the life you save, until help can arrive.
