What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique used when a cardiac emergency occurs. Cardiac arrest happens if the heart unexpectedly stops beating. Without a heartbeat, the heart cannot pump blood to the body’s major organs like the brain and liver. Blood contains oxygen, which these organs require to survive. Without oxygen, severe brain damage occurs within four minutes, and death occurs within ten minutes. CPR manually pumps oxygenated blood to the organs when the heart cannot do so due to cardiovascular complications.

What are the latest CPR recommendations?

Rescuers should check the victim for responsiveness and determine if they have a pulse. If there is no pulse, they should call 911 and report a cardiac arrest to the operator. Ideally, a second bystander will be available to call 911 while the first rescuer begins CPR immediately.

When performing CPR, The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends the following guidelines:

  • Kneel above the victim's chest and, keeping the arms straight, place one hand on top of the other in the center of the breastbone.
  • Pump the victim's chest, going down at least 2 inches with each compression. There should be 100 - 120 compressions per minute.
  • Continue compressions until emergency personnel arrives on the scene and can take over.
  • Individuals who are CPR certified may perform rescue breathing if the victim is not breathing normally on their own.

Rescue breathing involves first opening the victim's airway by tilting the head back. Next, with their mouth over the top of the victim's mouth, rescuers will deliver one rescue breath and observe whether their chest rises. If it rises, the rescuer may return to performing chest compressions. If the chest does not rise, give the second breath and resume chest compressions. Repeat a pattern of 2 rescue breaths following every 30 chest compressions until the victim is breathing normally or until emergency medical support arrives and can take over.

When is an AED required?

CPR pumps blood to the organs when the heart stops during a cardiac arrest but does not restart the heart. However, bystanders can restart the heart using an automated external defibrillator (AED). These devices are available for public use in airports, subway stations, parks, shopping malls, libraries, schools, and sports arenas. The use of an AED is required when a victim does not have a pulse.

After delivering five cycles of chest compressions, another bystander should go to retrieve an AED. The voice-automated device will guide the rescuer through each step of use. After using the AED, rescuers should confirm that the victim’s pulse returns before they stop delivering chest compressions. They may continue rescue breathing if the victim is not breathing on their own.

Q. What topics will a first aid class cover?

First aid classes teach procedures and basics involving wounds, bone fractures, poisoning, burns, choking, seizures, head injuries, and specialized topics like child CPR and CPR for infants. Healthcare professionals who need to increase their training should look for a first responder course or classes designed for the professional rescuer to supplement standard training. Individuals must distinguish between free courses that provide information only and those that provide official CPR and first aid certification.

Q: Where can I locate BLS and CPR classes near me?

Basic life support (BLS) and CPR certification courses are available in locations throughout Nebraska, with many options for classes in municipalities like Sidney and Lincoln. Courses are typically available through public health organizations, community centers, or fire halls. In addition to group classes, individuals may obtain CPR certification by taking an online course, which is convenient for many people. It is essential to recognize that although many CPR and first aid classes are available free of charge, those are intended for information purposes only as they do not provide participants with the same certification that official courses do.

Q. How can I keep my CPR and first aid knowledge up to date?

Rescuers need to revisit their CPR and first aid training by taking a refresher course before their certification expiration date. Regular renewals allow participants to stay current on new guidelines. After receiving standard certification, many individuals become interested in knowing even more about life-saving procedures. They may wish to upgrade their training to learn more about child CPR classes or CPR for infants.

Q. Where can I find CPR renewals near me?

CPR and first aid renewal classes are easy to complete through online renewal courses that help keep individuals up to date in their knowledge so they can skillfully provide emergency care when needed. Refresher materials and online coursework will be provided, and you can take the recertification course anytime you want. Recertification can also be completed through in person skills sessions in training centers and community health organizations across Nebraska. Individuals need to renew their membership within the specified date on their CPR certification card, ensuring no lapse in their credentials.
