CPR

Upon completion of this course users will be able to perform CPR on Adults, children (1yr – 8yrs), and infants. You will also learn how to use a Public Access Defibrillator. All the topics will be covered from airway, breathing, and circulation, to compression rate and depth, and the ratio of compressions to breaths.

You will be both watching a video, learning from an instructor, and demonstrating on a manikin, so dress accordingly. A great certification to have for babysitters and in the workplace.

We encourage everyone to bring a snack or lunch and we will take courtesy breaks regularly. Very casual dress, be comfortable, you will spend a lot of time on your knees and the floors are hard. Consider bringing some sort of knee cushion, towel, blanket, etc. If anyone has a medical condition that does not allow them to perform on their knees, we can have you work on a table top.

Most of the class is narrated via a DVD/PowerPoint and moves quickly.

Most importantly, the American Heart Association has a strict stipulation about promptness. Anyone arriving more than 5 minutes after we start will not be allowed to participate. This is not a Griffin policy but we do enforce this.
