Frequently Asked Questions

First aid is the immediate care one gives to an ill or injured person until medical care can be obtained. The First Aider’s role includes: recognizing the emergency calling EMS/911 reacting according to your skills, knowledge, and comfort level In a standard or emergency first aid class, students learn skills and knowledge to handle emergencies such as: bleeding heart attack and stroke anaphylaxis head, neck and spinal injuries diabetic treatment Having certification in first aid helps you prepare for these emergencies, and provide assistance and care until an advanced medical team arrives.

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The term cardio refers to the heart, and pulmonary refers to the lungs. CPR is the same as Basic Cardiac Life Support (BCLS). CPR is a combination of breathing and chest compressions. Performing CPR increases a cardiac arrest casualty’s chances of survival by keeping the brain supplied with oxygen until the person receives advanced medical care. CPR alone is not enough to help someone survive cardiac arrest. Advanced medical care is needed immediately, and includes the use of medications or a defibrillator. With proper CPR training, whether standalone or combined with a standard or emergency first aid course, can help make a difference in an emergency until help arrives.

AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. An AED sends an electric shock through the chest to the heart to start the heard beating effectively again. Defibrillation given as soon as possible is the key to helping some people survive cardiac arrest. All of our first aid & CPR classes include AED certification, and teach you skills to handle situations such as: choking situations respiratory distress respiratory arrest (when breathing stops) cardiac arrest
