The ‘Hero in 30 Training Course: CPR Without Mouth-to-Mouth Ventilation’ prepares you on how to rapidly respond when a person chokes, collapses suddenly or has a cardiac arrest. This 30-minute course teaches a simplified version of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) technique that does not use mouth-to-mouth ventilation. Hence the reason this course is shorter than the conventional resuscitation program, which lasts 4 to 5 hours. Trained individuals will be surer of themselves knowing how to help a friend, family member or other people.
The 30-minutes training course includes theory and practice. Presentations are accompanied by demonstration videos and images to facilitate understanding. Dummies and defibrillators are also employed during practice activities. During the training course, participants learn to recognize signs of complete obstruction of the airways and of cardiac arrest. They also learn the following:
- The Heimlich Maneuver (technique for clearing airways)
- Hands-only CPR
- The use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
When cardiac arrest occurs, each passing minute diminishes the chances of survival by 10%. Rapid response by someone nearby can make a significant difference and save a person’s life. All participants will receive a certificate of completion by email.
