Is AED training included in your CPR class?

The American Heart Association has been a strong advocate for placement of automated external defibrillation devices (AED) in ambulances, emergency vehicles, and targeted public areas such as arenas, gated communities, offices, and shopping malls.

All our AHA CPR courses include AED training, an integral part of CPR training today. Early CPR can provide lifesaving aid to a person suffering sudden cardiac arrest. Chest compressions help oxygen-rich blood keep circulating to the brain. After the AED device is attached and delivers the shock, the AED will prompt the operator to continue CPR while the device analyzes the victim.

The two techniques operate in tandem and are taught together in all AHA CPR certification courses.

Should I take an online course or train onsite? - Image related to CPR Class

Should I take an online course or train onsite?

Both options offer benefits. Training onsite allows you to ask questions of your instructor and gain hands-on experience working with a qualified professional. Online courses are designed to fit a busy lifestyle and allow you to study from the comfort of your home in your free time.

If it’s your first time taking CPR and AED training, we recommend taking the traditional course. You’ll benefit from the one-on-one time with your instructor and the hands-on training. If you are a medical professional coming up on your 2-year re-certification deadline, we recommend taking the online course and scheduling a visit for a brief skills refresher session.

    Taking a CPR class offers a wealth of benefits, not the least of which is the possibility that some day you may save someone’s life. But CPR isn’t as simple as it looks in the movies; done improperly, it’s all damage and no benefit. So to make sure you’re learning the latest and greatest in CPR technique, under the best possible circumstances for your education, keep these three factors in mind:

    1) Fits your schedule painlessly : You don’t want to be exhausted while you’re trying to learn the important techniques of a CPR class—not only will it impact the quality of your education, it will impact your perseverance and willingness to push on and complete your training. Online courses make this much easier, as they’re generally much more flexible in terms of the when and where of your courses. Just make sure it’s not going to be a pain, however you do it.

    2) Proper credentials : You don’t want to learn CPR from anyone who isn’t qualified to teach it. Not only is such CPR useless for any emergency situation you might face in your own life, putting your friends and loved ones at risk, it’s useless for professional purposes and might get you in legal trouble if used on anyone else. Learn from the real thing—anything else is a disaster in waiting.

    3) Cost :You can end up spending a ton of money on CPR training, depending on what sort of course you’re looking at. Find one that matches your budget without sacrificing too much in terms of quality; if you have to wait and save for a good enough education, it’s well worth the wait to get a worthwhile course.

    Signing up for a CPR class is fairly simple. However there are various classes to choose from, which can leave people confused as to which CPR class is the right one to take.

    Before beginning your training, you should ask your employer exactly what kind of CPR training is necessary for your job. Most people will be able to get by with a standard CPR class taught by a trained instructor.

    Healthcare & Emergency Responders

    If you work in healthcare, you should take a CPR class that is geared toward the health profession. Working in a hospital or medical practice means you’ll need a special CPR certification. This is especially important if you find yourself in an emergency scenario. In the Healthcare Provider CPR courses, advanced techniques are taught that are more in line with the skills demanded of healthcare professionals in the field.

    Public

    If you are part of the general public (i.e. NOT part of the medical field), a Heartsaver CPR or AED class will suffice. Typically, civilians won’t need to take a highly advanced CPR class that covers smaller points that would be more important for healthcare professionals to know, such as removing a bag-valve-mask. This CPR class is perfect for new parents, employees of non-healthcare businesses, and anyone who wants to know the proper procedure to follow when something goes wrong.
