Why should you learn CPR and Basic Life Support Skills?

CPR and Basic life support training provide individuals with the lifesaving skills necessary to save lives in critical medical emergencies, such as cardiac arrest management. Without immediate and appropriate attention, victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and obstructed airways can lose their lives while waiting for the emergency medical services team to arrive.

Our CPR and BLS certification courses provide comprehensive training in performing high-quality CPR, emergency oxygen management,  and the functions and features of an Automated External Defibrillator, following the guidelines of the American Heart Association. They also include the fundamentals of delivering first aid, which can benefit a wide range of emergency situations. With Basic Life Support, you can develop your critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.

Anyone can take CPR and First Aid classes, whether you are a healthcare provider, medical professional, emergency medical responder, child care provider, public safety professional, or workplace employee.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Browse through our frequently asked questions to learn more about our courses. Our support team is always standing by for further assistance and questions

Q. What are some first aid basics?

First aid procedures are intended 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 will cover are head injuries, wounds, bone fractures, poisoning, choking, and burns. Both in-person skills sessions and online classes will cover these basics. Free first aid classes will provide useful information but only paid versions will give certification to participants who complete the course.

Q. When is rescue breathing used in CPR?

If you are CPR certified and the victim is not breathing, the American Heart Association recommends combining chest compressions with rescue breathing. After performing 30 chest compressions, the rescuer will clear the victim's airway by tilting the head back and the chin upwards.

Next, they will place their mouth over the victim's mouth so it makes a seal and delivers one rescue breath, checking to see if the victim's chest rises. If the chest rises, the rescuer can resume chest compressions. If the chest does not rise, they can deliver another rescue breath and then return to compressions, repeating the sequence of 2 rescue breaths for every 30 compressions.

If two rescuers are present, one will perform rescue breathing, and the other will perform chest compressions. Rescuers should switch positions every couple of minutes to avoid fatigue.

Q. Are BLS and CPR classes the same thing?

No. BLS certification classes include CPR training but are more complex and intensive. It is a higher level of medical care, typically administered by healthcare and public safety professionals. Basic Life Support involves learning the same curriculum taught in CPR class. However, there are more in-depth practices involved.

Taking quality training in CPR and AED will be an excellent first step to getting your Basic Life Support or Advanced Life Support certification. The CPR class will provide you with the skills needed to save someone's life.

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 Texas and in numerous locations in the main centers like San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Austin in case of a medical emergency.

Online classes are an excellent option for people who do not live in an area where courses are offered or for busy professionals who find it difficult to schedule in-person training.

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

The best way to enhance CPR and first aid skills is to stay current with CPR renewal online or BLS renewal online. A CPR certification card will always list the expiration date, and individuals should ensure that they renew their training within that timeframe.

People who are interested in further education should consider a first responder course or an American Red Cross program in addition to their CPR and first aid certification program. Interested individuals may also wish to see specialized courses on baby first aid or mental health first aid. 

Q. Where can I find CPR renewals near me?

In addition to public CPR classes offered throughout major cities in Texas, including Dallas and Fort Worth, certificate holders nearing the end of their initial certification can renew their CPR certification online.
