CPR certification in North Dakota

American Training Association for CPR provide online CPR & First Aidtraining that is accessible to all North Dakota residents, including those in Minot and Bismarck.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique used to save the life of a person who goes into cardiac arrest, which occurs when their heart stops beating unexpectedly. When the heart stops, it does not supply the body's major organs with the oxygen they normally receive from the blood. Without the heart providing oxygenated blood to the organs, they will suffer irreversible damage, which can be fatal without emergency care. Without oxygen, brain damage can occur after four minutes, and the victim can die within ten minutes. When the heart is unable to do it on its own, CPR manually pumps blood to the organs.

What is the correct method for performing CPR?

Immediate action is critical to improving a victim's chance of survival during a cardiac arrest. Rescuers should check the victim for responsiveness and check their pulse. If there is no pulse, they should call 911, report a cardiac arrest to the operator, and begin CPR. The American Heart Association (AHA) uses following guidelines for performing CPR:

  • Kneel above the victim’s chest and place the hands on top of the other in the center of the chest.
  • Pump the victim’s chest at least 2 inches deep with each compression at a rate of 100 - 120 compressions per minute. Continue to perform chest compressions until emergency medical care arrives on the scene and can take over.
  • If the victim is not breathing normally on their own, CPR-certified rescuers can perform rescue breathing.
  • Rescue breathing starts by opening the victim’s airway by tilting the head back. Next, rescuers will seal their mouth over the victim's mouth and will deliver one rescue breath and observe whether the victim's chest rises. If the chest inflates, the rescuer may return to performing chest compressions only. If the chest does not rise, rescuers should give a second breath before resuming chest compressions. Continue to deliver 2 rescue breaths following every 30 chest compressions until the victim is breathing normally or until emergency medical support arrives. If the victim’s breath returns, rescuers must continue performing compressions until further help arrives.

When is compressions-only CPR the recommended method?

Compressions-only, or hands-only, CPR is recommended for individuals who have not received formal CPR training. Compressions-only CPR is the most straightforward technique, making it the easiest for anyone to perform effectively, even those who are uncertified. Using this method also allows rescuers to speak to 911 operators and receive instructions over the phone without interrupting compressions. Compressions-only CPR is also used when a victim is breathing normally, but they do not have a pulse.

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

Basic life support (BLS), CPR, and first aid classes are offered across North Dakota in locations throughout municipalities including Cannon Ball and Dickinson. Individuals can take group courses through community centers, hospitals, swimming pools, as well as public health organizations. Online classes are ideal for busy professionals who find it difficult to attend group courses.

Individuals should note that free CPR classes are informative but will not offer certification upon completion. Red Cross first aid and AHA CPR certification courses are available online for a small fee and will cover core skills, and they may also include instruction on specialized procedures like child CPR, CPR for infants, or CPR for the professional rescuer. Authorized courses will provide certification after completing an exam.

North Dakota CPR Data

  • North Dakota ranks 21st out of 50 states for cardiovascular deaths in one year.
  • Annually, there are 231 cardiovascular deaths for every 100,000 people in North Dakota.
  • 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.
  • Over 350,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests happen across the US every year.
  • In North Dakota, men are 46% more likely to die from cardiovascular complications than women are.

What basics does a first aid class teach?

Free first aid classes will include basic first aid procedures for treating a range of injuries, such as burns, wounds, bone fractures, choking, poisoning, and head injuries. Both in-person and online courses can teach individuals first aid procedures and first responder skills, and many will also offer formal first aid certification with the completion of the class when participants upgrade to a paid class. Free classes should be used for information only.

What is the recommended method for treating an electroshock?

Electrocution injuries can range from mild to severe. Rescuers should call 911 and check for signs that the electroshock victim requires CPR, like the absence of a pulse. When possible, rescuers should turn off the power source that caused the shock and should ensure that the victim is free from any electrical currents before they touch them, so they do not electrocute themselves. Raising the victim’s legs above their heart will increase the blood pressure to prevent fainting while waiting for emergency responders to arrive.

CPR and First Aid Certification and Renewals

How long is CPR certification valid?

Depending on the provider, CPR and first aid certification is valid for either one or two years. Individuals should check the expiration date on their CPR card and ensure that they renew their certification within the specified timeframe. Staying current with CPR and first aid certification confirms that an individual is well-informed and ready to provide treatment in an emergency.

Where can I find CPR renewals near me?

Individuals can renew their CPR and first aid credentials by taking a refresher class and successfully passing a certification exam. Certification renewals can be completed in person at locations throughout North Dakota or by taking a convenient online course.
