CPR

  • Knowledge is Power

    Although it may be clichéd to say, knowing really is half the battle. That is the approach that the Red Cross takes when it comes to first aid and public safety. Since its foundation in 1881, the Red Cross has grown into an international organization helping those in need and offering classes on all manner of safety-related topics. Adrienne Davis of eHow goes over some of the course topics that may be taught by a Red Cross branch near you!

  • Mom a budding CPR Trainer

    Being a longtime expert in calibrating and servicing hazardous material detectors, Sullivan knows about safety and she has been taking her business Response Ready Technical Services a step further by providing CPR, first aid and AED (automated external defibrillator) training to local schools and organizations that need to reinforce safety education.

    “At first I was thinking I would learn it and teach it to my friends,” said Sullivan, who has a degree in environmental health policy in 2006 and has been running her calibration business for 12 years.

    American CPR Instructor Beth As a mother of two, Carmel Valley resident Beth Sullivan said she gets frustrated at the fact that she signs liability waivers when she puts her kids into the hands of others, even though they are often not trained in CPR. Even when it comes to sending her kids off on play dates, she has a vested interest in knowing those parents know emergency procedures.

  • COMMUNITY CPR DAY: A demonstration of "Hands Only CPR"

    EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – Seeing someone collapse in front of you is a situation we all dread. CPR can more than double a person’s chances for survival. Its a simple technique that anyone can do.


    On Saturday, you have the opportunity to learn how to save a life, as WEAU and Sacred Heart Hospital host Community CPR Day.

    On Tuesday, We talked with Robin Schultz of Sacred Heart Hospital about Hands Only CPR.

    "You really only need to know two simple steps,” Schultz said. “The first is to call 911 or send someone to call 911, so they can activate our emergency response system, and the other is to just get to the center of the chest and do hard, fast, deep compressions."

  • Prolonged CPR May Boost Chances for Cardiac Arrest Victims

    Performing CPR for longer periods of time boosts chances of survival in both children and adults in hospital settings, two large U.S. studies show.

    The first study examined the medical records of more than 3,400 hospitalized children in the United States and Canada who suffered cardiac arrest between 2000 and 2009.

    The second study looked at 64,000 adult hospital patients who suffered cardiac arrest between 2000 and 2008. Survival among patients who received longer CPR (median 25 minutes) was 12 percent higher than for those who received the shorter CPR (median 16 minutes).
