CPR & AED Awareness Month


June is CPR & AED Awareness Month

CPRAmerican CPR Training™ encourages all of our responsible and conscientious clients to help us support and promote National CPR & AED Awareness Week.

In 2008, Congress designated the first week of June for observation of National CPR / AED Awareness Week, with the goal of encouraging all states, cities and towns to establish organized programs which provide CPR and AED training to the public. We at American CPR Training™ realize that not everyone can arrange a class or promote CPR & AED Awareness the first week (especially with Memorial Day cutting into this week) so we've made it our policy since 2008 to promote CPR & AED Awareness Month,

By participating in the program, we can raise the public awareness regarding Sudden Cardiac Arrest and increase the chance of survival by having at least one person in each household trained and an employee for each shift and every department trained in CPR and the use of an AED.

Plan Now! Will your group work with us to promote CPR and AED training in your community? Here are some CPR & AED Awareness suggestions, information and special offers...


Recent statistics for Sudden Cardiac Arrest, CPR and AED

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)

  • Almost 300,000 casualties of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest are treated each year in the U.S.
  • Less than eight percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.

CPR

  • Less than one-third of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest casualties receive bystander CPR.
  • Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a personís chance of survival.

AEDsAutomated External Defibrillators (AEDs)

  • Unless CPR and defibrillation are provided within minutes of collapse, few attempts at resuscitation are successful.
  • Even if CPR is performed, defibrillation with an AED is required to stop the abnormal rhythm and restore a normal heart rhythm.
  • New technology has made AEDs simple and user-friendly. Clear audio and visual cues tell users what to do when using an AED and coach people through CPR. A shock is delivered only if the victim needs it.

CPR Guidelines have changed...

As you've probably heard, CPR methods and practices have changed. These are the most significant CPR updates in more than 40 years.

Now is the ideal time to re-certify your group, as American CPR Training™ is now offering CPR, First Aid, AED and Bloodborne Pathogens Training classes that include all new Student Training Handbooks that follow the new updated guidelines and standards.

All previously trained individuals will need the new, updated CPR training that we are very proud to offer at American CPR Training™. We pride ourselves in being leaders in the Health & Safety field and are extremely pleased to be the first training organization to introduce the complete C.A.R.E. CPR™ curriculum.

The new CPR certification class will include complete, hands-on training in the newest Adult, Child & Infant CPR recommendations and guidelines, and as a Bonus, the training will also include instruction in Compression-Only CPR™.

We also include with every training an individual Student Practice Kit for each and every participant who attends the training. That means each participant who is enrolled in CPR or AED training is issued a CPR barrier mask and non-latex gloves for optimal personal protection. Each participant is also given a Student Training Handbook, CPR reminder pen and a two-year certification card.

The Student Practice Kits, the Student Training Handbooks, the reminder pen, and the two-year certification cards are all included in the price of the training!

Remember that every Home & Business should have an AED

AED devices can actually lead to recovery, while CPR alone most often can only maintain stasis until more advanced Lifesaving care arrives. You can purchase AEDs for very reasonable prices. If you have a little time to plan ahead, the AED Grant Program is an easy way to obtain corporate, buy down Grant funding to help reduce the cost further. This program is a partnership between AED Manufacturers and Corporate Sponsors to reduce the cost below any available online pricing to effect deployment of these critical devices as many places as possible. The program is available for Businesses, and even Individuals, not just Organizations and Non Profit Groups.
