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 are the official guidelines for performing CPR?

A victim’s chance of survival declines with each passing second after a cardiac arrest. Rescuers must perform CPR as soon as possible to give victims the best chance of survival. To begin, rescuers should check the victim for responsiveness and determine if they have a pulse. If they do not have a pulse, rescuers should call 911 and immediately begin CPR. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that rescuers perform CPR using these steps:

  • Rescuers should center their hands on the victim’s breastbone and position their bodies directly above their chest.
  • Perform rapid compressions by pumping the victim’s chest at a rate of 120 compressions per minute. Ensure that each compression presses a minimum depth of 2 inches into the chest and that the chest recoils after each compression.
  • Continue performing compressions until emergency medical staff arrives.
  • Compressions-only CPR is the most basic technique and is the recommended method for rescuers who are not CPR certified as it allows them to perform compressions while following phone instructions from a 911 operator at the same time.

When is an AED required?

CPR manually pumps blood, but it does not restart the heart. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is needed to start a heart that has stopped beating. These devices are available for public use in airports, libraries, schools, parks, subway stations, shopping malls, and sports arenas.

After a rescuer has performed five cycles of chest compressions, they should send another bystander to retrieve an AED. The device’s voice automation 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, and they may continue rescue breathing if needed.

What is the appropriate treatment for adults who are choking?

When a person is choking, rescuers should use the universal sign for choking, which is to mimic choking yourself, to ask the victim if they are choking. If a victim is choking, the rescuer must perform the Heimlich maneuver. Rescuers will stand behind the victim, lean them forward and wrap their arms around the victim's waist. Next, they will deliver five quick thrusts, pressing a closed fist into the victim's abdomen and holding the fist with the other hand. If the object does not clear the victim's throat, repeat the Heimlich maneuver as needed while waiting for an emergency crew to arrive.

Q. Which first aid procedures are covered in a certification course?

First aid classes will teach participants the basics of treating accidental injuries. Some of the main topics that will be covered include treating bone fractures, seizures, eye injuries, wounds, burns, poisoning, choking, and head injuries. It is important to note that free first aid or CPR classes are for instruction only and do not provide certification. For individuals who wish to obtain official first aid and CRP certification, a proper course with a CPR and first aid exam are required.

Q. Where can I find BLS, CPR, and first aid classes near me?

Basic life support (BLS), CPR, and first aid classes are offered across Oregon in locations throughout municipalities like Eugene, Salem, and Hillsboro. In addition, community centers, hospitals, swimming pools, and community health organizations offer group courses.

Online classes are a convenient alternative for individuals who do not live in an area where courses are offered or for busy professionals who prefer to complete their training according to their schedule. It is worth noting that free CPR classes are informative but will not offer certification upon completion. American Red Cross or American Heart Association certification courses will cover standard lifesaving techniques and more specialized procedures like child or infant CPR.

Q. How do I stay current with my knowledge?

It is essential to regularly refresh CPR and first aid knowledge so that individuals can remain confident in their abilities and stay current on new guidelines. Any certification class will provide students with information on how and when they should re-visit their training and renew their certification. Additionally, many individuals are required to make their certification current for employment requirements and must complete a first responder course or CPR for the professional rescuer class in addition to basic training requirements.

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

Individuals may renew their certification in person by attending a CPR class or through an online course. Regardless of which type of class a person selects, it is vital to take CPR and first aid renewal online before their current credentials expire to keep their knowledge up to date and confidence to act in an emergency that comes with recent training.
