What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique used during a cardiac emergency. 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 is the proper way to perform CPR?

Every moment matters to increase a victim’s chance of survival. Therefore, rescuers should not hesitate to begin CPR. The American Heart Association describes the proper CPR guidelines as follows:

  • Check the victim for responsiveness by asking loudly, “Are you okay?” and shaking their shoulder firmly. If they are unresponsive and do not have a pulse, rescuers should call 911 and begin CPR immediately.
  • Rescuers should perform rapid chest compressions at a rate of 120 beats per minute, firmly pressing down a minimum of 2 inches deep into the victim’s chest. Continue compressions until emergency medical assistance arrives and can take over.
  • If a victim is not breathing normally, rescuers should perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, also known as rescue breathing. Placing their mouth over the victim’s, rescuers should deliver one rescue breath and observe if the victim’s chest rises. If the chest does not inflate, give a second breath before resuming chest compressions.
  • Perform CPR at a ratio of 30 compressions to 2 rescue breaths and continue this pattern until emergency medical staff arrives. If a victim’s normal breath returns, rescuers can continue to perform compressions only.

When is compression-only CPR recommended?

The AHA recommends that people who do not have CPR certification training use the compression-only method, also known as hands-only CPR, because it is the simplest form of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Compressions-only CPR is easy to perform and will keep a cardiac arrest victim alive until emergency personnel arrives. CPR with rescue breathing is a more complicated procedure, and the American Heart Association recommends this technique for those who have completed CPR certification training.

Q. What are the first aid basics that everyone should know?

First aid is used to preserve life and treat accidental injuries until a person can seek further medical care. Some of the most common injuries that a first aid course covers are bone fractures, poisoning, head injuries, wounds, choking, and burns. Both in-person and online classes will cover these basics. Free first aid classes will teach helpful information but do not provide certification. Individuals who wish to receive formal CPR or first aid certification should ensure that any course they take can provide them with the credentials that they need upon completion.

Q: What are the options for BLS and CPR classes near me?

Basic life support (BLS) and CPR certification class are available at hospitals, community health centers, fire halls, and other public locations across Nevada, including Henderson and Reno. Online classes are a great alternative to attending group courses when individuals prefer to learn in a self-guided environment. Participants should confirm that a class has a CPR or first aid certification component for the most effective training. Many classes are available free of charge, but individuals should be aware that these are intended for instruction only and do not offer a certification card after completing the course.

Q. How can I enhance my CPR and first aid knowledge?

The best way to maximize CPR and first aid skills is to stay current with certification renewals. Individuals should ensure that they renew their certification by completing refresher training within the timeframe indicated on their CPR card. People interested in further education should consider a first responder course or specialized courses on baby first aid or mental health first aid in addition to their CPR and first aid certification.

Q. Where can I find CPR and first aid renewals near me?

Participants can renew their CPR and first aid credentials the same way they earned their initial certification or through classes offered throughout Nevada. Alternatively, they may opt for the convenience of renewing their certificate by completing an online course and exam.
