CPR certification in Arkansas

American Training Association for CPR provide online CPR & First Aidtraining and certification that is accessible to all Arkansas residents, including those in Jonesboro and Little Rock.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique that manually pumps blood to deliver oxygen to the organs during a cardiac arrest when the heart is unable to beat on its own. When it is not beating, the heart fails to pump blood to the body's major organs, including the brain. These organs need the oxygen contained in blood to survive, and without it, severe brain damage will occur within four minutes, and the victim will die within ten minutes. Performing immediate CPR dramatically improves a victim's chances of survival.

What is the correct way to perform CPR?

Rescuers should perform CPR according to the latest guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA), which lists the following steps:

  1. Check the victim for responsiveness. If they do not respond, and they do not have a pulse, have another bystander call 911 and begin performing CPR as soon as possible. Remember that acting quickly is critical to a victim's survival, so rescuers should not delay beginning CPR or take any breaks for more than 10 seconds at a time once they start.
  2. Perform chest compressions, pressing down a minimum of 2 inches on the victim’s chest, at a rate of 120 compressions per minute. Continue compressions until emergency medical assistance arrives. If another rescuer is present, take turns delivering compressions and frequently alternate to avoid fatigue.

How and when do I perform mouth-to-mouth?

Use rescue breathing when a victim is not breathing normally on their own. To begin, rescuers should ensure that the victim’s airway to open by tilting the head back. After delivering 30 chest compressions, rescuers should place their mouth over the victim's mouth, give one rescue breath and observe if their chest rises. If it does not, rescuers should give the second breath before resuming chest compressions. Continue using the ratio of 30:2 compressions to rescue breaths until the victim has returned to normal breathing, then continue compressions until emergency personnel arrives. If two rescuers are present, use a ratio of 15:2 compressions to rescue breaths.

What are the options for BLS and CPR classes near me?

Basic life support (BLS), CPR, and first aid classes are offered across Arkansas, in locations throughout municipalities like El Dorado and Pine Bluff. Community centers, hospitals, and public health organizations offer a variety of courses. Online classes are a convenient alternative for individuals who do not live in an area where courses are offered, or for busy professionals who prefer to complete their training according to their own schedule and pace. It is worth noting that free CPR classes are informative but will not offer certification upon completion. Red Cross or AHA certification courses will cover standard lifesaving techniques as well as more specialized first aid procedures like child or infant CPR.

Arkansas CPR Data

  • Arkansas ranks 37th out of 50 states for cardiovascular deaths in one year.
  • For every 100,000 people in Arkansas, there are 317 cardiovascular deaths annually.
  • Over 350,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests happen across the US every year.
  • Cardiac arrest is a top cause of death in America.
  • Only 46% of Americans who died from cardiovascular complications had received CPR before emergency medical support arrived.
  • In Arkansas, men are 43% more likely to die from a cardiovascular complication than women are.

What are the first aid basics that everyone should know?

First aid is used to preserve life and treat accidental injuries until a person can seek further medical care. Some of the most common injuries that a first aid course will cover are bone fractures, poisoning, head injuries, wounds, choking, and burns. Both in-person and online classes will cover these basics. Free first aid classes will teach useful information but do not provide certification. Individuals who wish to receive formal CPR or first aid certification should ensure that any course they take can provide them with the credentials that they need upon completion.

What is the correct way to treat an unconscious choking victim?

When a rescuer discovered an unconscious person, they should first call 911, check for a pulse, and check their airway. If they determine that the victim is choking on something blocking their throat, they must perform the Heimlich maneuver. Roll the victim onto their back and tilt the chin upwards to open the airway. If possible, remove any visible objects in the mouth. Next, perform CPR chest compressions, which should dislodge the item and will open their airway. If the rescuer is unable to clear the airway and the victim remains unconscious, continue chest compressions until emergency medical services arrive.

CPR and First Aid Certification and Renewals

How can I enhance my CPR and first aid knowledge?

The best way to maximize CPR and first aid skills are to stay current with certification renewals. Individuals should ensure that they renew their certification by completing refresher training within the timeframe indicated on their CPR card. People who are interested in further education should consider a first responder course or specialized courses on baby first aid or mental health first aid in addition to their CPR and first aid certification.

Where can I find CPR and first aid renewals near me?

Participants can renew their CPR and first aid credentials through the same way they earned their initial certification, or through classes offered throughout Arkansas. Alternatively, they may opt for the convenience of renewing their certification by completing an online course and exam.
