CPR/AED/Basic First Aid Course Outline

This CPR certification course explains the steps of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator. This course also covers proper techniques in first aid to address situations that call for emergency medical attention in public settings.

The online training is designed to teach you how to respond to medical emergencies such as choking, heart attack, and different types of poisoning and how to handle an injury. You will also learn essential lifesaving techniques to feel confident when immediate action makes a difference.

The training materials for the course allow you to systematically review everything you will need to know for the certification exam.

CPR/AED/Basic First Aid Course Section Includes:

American Heart Association Guidelines: This section covers updates for CPR and First Aid guidelines. An example of an update is the importance of chest compressions in survival. The American Heart Association recommends chest compressions that reach at least two inches but not exceed 2.4 inches in adults, at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute for hands-only CPR training.

Laws and Safety regarding CPR: This CPR and first aid training program explain symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest, Good Samaritan laws, and the chain of survival, along with universal safety precautions that should be taken during any emergency situation.

CPR: This section defines cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how Infant, Child, and Adult CPR are different. Furthermore, this section goes into detail about each type of CPR protocol. It also discusses the hands-only CPR protocol, which the American Heart Association recently implemented.

Universal Precautions: Protecting yourself is of the utmost importance when providing medical care to emergency victims. This section will cover universal practices and ways to protect you and prevent the spread of diseases. Proper hand hygiene after touching potentially infectious materials and using PPEs such as gloves, face masks, and gowns, among others, to prevent exposure to contagious contaminants in body fluids like saliva and blood will be covered.

Emergency Action Steps: Different medical emergencies require different action plans to manage the situation and preserve lives. This topic will explore various emergencies and the corresponding actions. Emergency management includes steps like preventing the incident from happening and being prepared to handle the situation.

Conscious and Unconscious Choking: This section highlights conscious and unconscious choking in adult victims and its treatment. It further explains choking as a severe health risk in infant and child victims and their treatment protocols.

Bleeding control: Learning to control bleeding is essential in an emergency. Uncontrolled bleeding can lead to death. Therefore, the priority when dealing with uncontrolled bleeding is to stop blood flow. This can be done by applying pressure to the wound with a clean cloth.
Types of Shocks: This course section will cover the different kinds of shock and how to respond during such emergencies. For example, anaphylactic shock, caused by allergic reactions, and septic shock, brought about by infections.

Types of Burns: This course section will teach you about the various types of burns, including electrical, radiation, chemical, and thermal burns.

Types of Poisoning: This section will teach you about the common types of poisoning, including food poisoning, alcohol poisoning, carbon monoxide poisoning, sun poisoning, plant poisoning, and chemical poisoning.

Muscle Injuries: This section will teach you about types of muscle injuries and sprains caused by fast and intense muscle contraction. Muscle injuries can occur due to accidents like falling or activities like athletics.

Broken Bones/Fractures: This section covers how fractures happen, including complete and partial ones. It will include types like Stress fracture, Oblique fracture, Transverse fracture, Comminuted fracture, Greenstick fracture, Pathologic fracture, Stable fracture, Open fracture, Spiral fracture, Avulsion fracture, Compression fracture, and Impacted fracture.

Sudden Illness: Sudden illness can occur when a person's health deteriorates unexpectedly. These situations require emergency medical attention to save a life and restore the person's good health. Some examples of sudden illnesses are heart attacks, seizures, comas, strokes, and fainting.

Stroke: This section will teach you about types of strokes, their causes, symptoms, and first aid treatment. It also covers tips on how to prevent strokes.

Seizures: Seizures are caused by an abrupt electrical disturbance in the brain. This section will teach you more about how seizures are classified and when to see a doctor.

Heat-related Illnesses: This course section will cover more heart-related illnesses, which usually affect the heart's ability to work. Numerous heart complications are collectively referred to as heart-related illnesses.

Frostbite and Hypothermia: This topic will cover the symptoms of hypothermia and frostbite, who is at high risk of being affected, and most importantly, what to do in such incidences.

Automated External Defibrillator: This section will educate you on how to use an Automated External Defibrillator to revive someone who has just suffered cardiac arrest. The AED will analyze the victim's heart rhythm and only press the "Shock" button if necessary.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Browse through our frequently asked questions to learn more about our courses. Our support team is always standing by for further assistance and questions

Q. Is online CPR classes an approved way to earn a certification?

Yes. Online classes are approved and a more efficient way to earn a valid certification. We have certified tens of thousands of students online, including nurses, dentists, physicians, teachers, industrial workers, medical professionals, and other professionals.

Q. Why is AED training essential?

According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur annually in the United States. Of these, approximately 10,000 result in survival.

Although the automated external defibrillator is the only option to restore a normal heartbeat during cardiac arrest, you can certainly request help from trained medical professionals. However, because the typical response time for a first responder is 8-12 minutes, each minute of delay in performing CPR reduces the chances of survival by approximately 10%. Thus, having an AED available and knowing how to use it is essential.

Q. Why is it Important to Learn First Aid?

Accidents and medical emergencies can happen at any time. Basic first aid training can save a victim's life and help them recover quickly. The right first aid not only increases comfort for the patient but also prevents the situation from worsening. First aid certification programs build confidence in those who take them and ensure the safety of the student's loved ones and anyone they come into contact with. These classes are open to anyone, even those who are not in the healthcare field.

Q. How to get a CPR/AED & First Aid certification?
