CPR certification in Rhode Island

American Training Association for CPR provides online CPR & First Aidtraining and certification that is available to all Rhode Island residents, including those in Providence, Newport, and Warwick.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving procedure used during a cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest happens if the heart unexpectedly stops beating. Blood contains oxygen, which the body’s major organs, including the brain, need to survive. Without a heartbeat, the heart cannot pump blood to the organs, and without oxygen, severe brain damage occurs within four minutes and death occurs within ten minutes. CPR manually pumps blood to the organs when cardiovascular complications prevent the heart from doing so itself.

What is the latest CPR protocol?

The American Heart Association (AHA) uses the following chain of survival to establish guidelines on how to perform CPR:

  1. Recognize the situation as a cardiac arrest and call 911
  2. Immediately begin to perform CPR, focusing on chest compressions
  3. Rapid defibrillation.
  4. Care by emergency medical personnel.
  5. In-hospital life support and care.

Focusing on bystander’s ability to perform the first two steps, after checking for signs of life by assessing a victim’s breathing and pulse, rescuers should check for responsiveness by tapping the victim and asking, "Are you okay?" If the victim does not respond and there is no pulse, begin CPR. Basic CPR, or compression-only CPR, involves pumping the center of the victim's chest with both hands, at least 2 inches in depth, at a rate of 120 compressions per minute. Continue CPR until an emergency medical team arrives.

How many rescuers are needed to perform CPR?

One person can perform CPR effectively alone, but having at least two people present during a cardiac arrest is ideal. One person can begin chest compressions immediately while the other rescuer can call 911 and retrieves the nearest AED if needed. A second rescuer can also assist in delivering compressions and rescue breathing if it is necessary. In situations where there is one rescuer, they should follow a pattern of 30:2 chest compressions to rescue breaths. When there are two responders, they should use a ratio of 15:2 and be sure to alternate positions every few minutes to prevent rescuer fatigue.

Rhode Island CPR Data

  • Rhode Island ranks 20th out of 50 states for cardiovascular deaths in one year.
  • Annually, there are 230 cardiovascular deaths for every 100,000 people in Rhode Island.
  • 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 Rhode Island, men are 57% more likely to die from cardiovascular complications than women are.

What should I expect to learn in a first aid class?

First aid programs teach the skills that individuals need to assess people who have been injured and provide treatment until they can seek emergency medical care. First aid classes will cover basics for treating injuries such as head injuries, bone fractures, choking, poisoning, wounds, burns, and more. First aid training is available either in-person in group settings or online. Many free first aid classes area available but they are informative only and don’t provide nationally-recognized certification.

What is the recommended treatment for amputations?

When an appendage becomes amputated, rescuers should call 911 immediately and check the victim for signs of breathing and perform CPR if needed. To treat an amputation, apply direct pressure and elevate the affected area. Position the victim by raising their legs twelve inches above their heart to increase blood pressure and decrease the likelihood of fainting. Tightly wrap the amputated area with a clean bandage. If possible, clean the amputated body part, wrap it in a bandage, and place it on ice. Give the amputated part to emergency medical staff to accompany the victim to the hospital.

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

In Rhode Island, public health organizations offer basic life support (BLS), CPR, and first aid classes throughout Middletown, Cranston, Pawtucket and other municipalities. Online CPR and first aid certification courses are an ideal choice for individuals who wish to complete self-guided, independent training from any location.

In addition to standard BLS, first aid, and CPR, there are a variety of courses an individual can take such as a first responder course, CPR for the professional rescuer, Red Cross CPR and first aid certification, pediatric CPR, and healthcare CPR.

CPR and First Aid Certification and Renewals

How can I upgrade my CPR and first aid knowledge?

Individuals can enhance CPR and first aid skills are by staying current with renewals. A CPR certification card will always list the expiration date, and individuals should ensure that they renew their training within that timeframe. Participants who want to improve their skills should consider a first responder course or specialized courses on baby first aid, child CPR, CPR for infants, or mental health first aid in addition to their CPR and first aid certification.

Where are CPR and first aid renewals available near me?

CPR and first aid renewals help keep individuals up to date in their knowledge so they can skillfully provide emergency care when needed. Renewals are easily completed through online refresher courses and exams. Recertification can also be completed in-person in locations across Rhode Island. It is important for Individuals to renew their membership within the date printed on their CPR certification card, so there is no lapse in their credentials.
