Golder Ranch Fire District has teamed up with U of A Sarver Heart Center to bring the community the ability to learn Chest-Compression-Only CPR.
Researchers found that adults who experienced cardiac arrest in a non-hospital setting, such as a restaurant or mall, were 60% more likely to survive if they received compression-only CPR than if they received traditional CPR or no CPR until an emergency medical services (EMS) crew arrived at the scene. – The findings are published in the Oct. 6 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.
This class is a hands on course that will teach you the method and importance of compression only CPR, in addition to AED training. This is a non-certified free to the public course that focuses on assisting teenagers and adults who suddenly collapse from a cardiac event.
In this class you will learn:
- Teen and Adult oriented compression only CPR
- AED Usage
- Activating the emergency system
- What you can do as a bystander to improve a person’s likelihood of survival and improve their outcome after survival.
Who would benefit from this course?
- Anyone older than 12 years of age– you can be prepared to assist in an emergency situation that can occur in the general public
- Community Groups for Teens/Adults
- Volunteers at churches, events, etc.
Compression-only CPR is an acceptable alternative for those who are unwilling, unable, untrained, or are no longer able to perform full CPR. In some cases, compression-only CPR is the preferred method for members of the public who witness an adult suddenly collapse.
**Compression-only CPR should not be used when the oxygen in the person’s body has likely been used up, such as with a drowning incident or when a respiratory emergency may have caused the cardiac arrest.
