CPR certification in Connecticut

American Training Association for CPR provide online CPR & First Aidtraining and certification that is accessible for all Connecticut residents, including those in Hartford and New Haven.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique used during a cardiac arrest, which occurs when the heart stops beating unexpectedly, due to cardiovascular complications. Without a heartbeat, the heart cannot pump oxygenated blood to the body's major organs like the brain and liver. Without an oxygen supply, severe brain damage occurs within four minutes and victims will die within ten minutes. CPR manually pumps oxygenated blood to the organs when cardiac arrest stops the heart from doing so on its own.

What are the latest guidelines for performing CPR?

According to the latest American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, rescuers should perform CPR using the following steps:

  1. Check the victim for responsiveness and a pulse. If neither are present, have another bystander call 911 and begin CPR immediately. Fast action is critical to a victim's survival, meaning rescuers should not delay in beginning CPR.
  2. Place the hands in the center of the victim's breastbone and kneel above their chest.
  3. Delivery 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.

What is the correct technique for performing rescue breathing?

If a victim is not breathing, rescuers should perform rescue breathing. Rescuers should begin by opening the airway by tilting the chin upwards and the head back. Then, placing their mouth over the victim's, deliver one rescue breath and observe if the victim’s chest inflates. If it does not rise, give the second breath before resuming chest compressions. Continue to perform compressions with rescue breaths at a ratio of 30:2.

If more than one rescuer is present, have one person perform compressions, and the other person deliver rescue breaths, at a ratio of 15 compressions to 2 rescue breaths. Alternate positions to prevent fatigue and rescuer burnout.

Connecticut CPR Data

  • Connecticut ranks 10th out of 50 states for the number of cardiovascular deaths in one year.
  • In the state of Connecticut, there were 217 cardiovascular deaths for every 100,000 people annually.
  • Cardiac arrest is a main cause of death in America.
  • In Connecticut, men are 48% more likely to die from a cardiac-related incident than women are.
  • More than 350,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests happen in the US each year.

What skills do free first aid classes teach?

A first aid course will cover basics for treating injuries such as choking, poisoning, wounds, burns, head injuries, bone fractures, and more. First aid classes teach individuals the skills they need to learn how to assess people who have been injured and provide treatment for them until they can seek emergency medical care. An individual can take first aid classes either in-person or online. Free online classes are informative but don’t provide nationally-recognized certification or the in-depth training that most emergencies require.

How is poisoning treated?

If someone has been poisoned, or there is suspicion of poisoning, call the National Capital Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222. Symptoms of poisoning include sleepiness, difficulty breathing, vomiting, dizziness, or redness around the mouth. To treat a case of poisoning, take the victim outside for fresh air when possible. Do not give the victim a drink or anything to take orally, but have them rinse their mouth with water. If possible, collect bottles and containers of any ingested substances to provide to emergency personnel. Rescuers should perform CPR on the victim if they are not breathing.

CPR and First Aid Certification and Renewals

How can I stay current with my CPR and first aid skills?

A CPR renewal course helps ensure that an individual’s knowledge is current and that they are aware of new guidelines for first responders. While renewing basic CPR and first aid certification, skilled healthcare professionals have the option of bypassing the course and completing the testing portion only and allowing them to save time. For others who want more in-depth information, they may choose to add a supplementary course with a specialization such as CPR for infants or child CPR.

How can I find CPR renewals near me?

In addition to group classes available throughout the central municipalities in Connecticut, participants can also renew their certification through online CPR courses. Online courses are an excellent option for individuals and professionals with busy schedules who prefer to complete CPR and first aid training at their own pace.
