Enrolling in a CPR online course is necessary for certain professions requiring medical training. These professions include but are not limited to Healthcare providers, Healthcare Professionals, Medical personnel, Child care Providers, Lifeguards, School Personnel, and Fitness Instructors.

A CPR/AED certification is not just a personal accomplishment or employment requirement. It will enable you to save a life right when it matters the most.

What will you Learn in our CPR and First Aid Course?

This online course in CPR/AED and First Aid will take participants through an in-depth learning style covering the topics mentioned below. We have briefly described what you should expect to be covered in each topic. By the end of this course, you will derive a comprehensive understanding of managing different emergencies and the precautions to take to protect yourself while at them. You can access the course anytime on a PC, laptop, or mobile device.

  1. New changes recommended in AHA official guidelines - This topic will cover the updated changes that have been made to the CPR and First Aid rules since the previous guidelines were put in place. A good example emphasizes how important the quality of chest compressions is in contributing to survival. The American Heart Association recommends chest compressions reaching at least two inches but not exceeding 2.4 inches in adults.
  2. Good Samaritan Laws and Chain of Survival - Bystanders are often reluctant to assist victims because they fear they may face legal ramifications if something goes wrong. However, Good Samaritan laws offer protection in such cases. In the unfortunate event of a cardiac emergency, you must follow a specific series of steps called Chain of Survival to increase the chances of survival. It includes steps recognizing cardiac arrest early, getting early access to medical attention, early CPR, early defibrillation, etc.
  3. Symptoms of Sudden Cardiac Arrest - Recognizing the symptoms of cardiac arrest emergency early has proven to be quite helpful in saving lives. This emergency training class will help you learn the symptoms of cardiac arrest and the warning signs on the lookout. The symptoms are someone collapsing abruptly, unconscious, and lacking a pulse or breathing. You will learn what causes sudden cardiac arrest and, most notably, what to do to help someone when this happens.
  4. Universal Precautions - Protecting yourself is essential when giving first aid or performing CPR. Universal Precautions recognize that human blood and other bodily fluids are potentially infectious and cause diseases. For this reason, you will be trained to protect yourself at all times. In addition, your first aid kit must include the appropriate PPEs to protect you, such as CPR barriers, gloves, face masks, gowns, etc.
  5. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) - CPR keeps the blood flow through the cardiac arrest patient's body to keep their vital organs alive until the emergency medical services team arrives. CPR training will teach you how to administer this lifesaving skill in different scenarios involving different age groups during your CPR training. The course will teach CPR protocol for single and two rescuers, following the guidelines of the American Heart Association and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
  6. Adult - The training will guide you on performing CPR on older patients past puberty. You will learn the proper depth and speed of compressions to use.
  7. Child - You will learn how to perform CPR on children above 1 to those just getting into puberty.
  8. Infant - For babies below one year, special attention is needed when performing CPR to avoid causing more harm than good. The training will educate you on how to do this effectively.
  9. Treatment for a Conscious Adult Choking Victim - This training will teach you how to identify the symptoms of a choking person and how to help them. If a severe case of choking in conscious adults results in upper airway obstruction, use the Heimlich technique to save the victim's life. You can use chest thrusts and back blows. If the victim can still speak and breathe, encourage them to cough to remove the object choking them.
  10. Treatment for an Unconscious Adult Choking Victim - Immediate CPR is recommended if a victim loses consciousness due to choking. After performing a set of chest compressions, look inside the victim's mouth and remove any material within your reach that is causing the choking. Continue with rescue breaths giving two slow but full breaths and pausing in the middle.
  11. Compression Only CPR - For bystanders, it's highly recommended that they perform compression-only CPR (hands-only CPR) on adults who are victims of cardiac arrest. The recommended guideline is to provide high-quality compressions that involve pushing hard and fast at the center of the victim's chest with minimum interruptions between the compressions. It should be done until trained rescuers, or an AED arrives.
  12. Recovery Position - The course covers placing an unconscious victim to ensure their airway stays clear and open and prevents them from choking due to vomit or other fluids. In addition, during your CPR and First Aid class, you will learn the recommended recovery position for a cardiac arrest victim and any emergencies like fractured bones. The lesson will clearly explain when and how to use the recovery position in this course.
  13. Conscious Choking - To help save the lives of choking victims, it's vital to recognize the signs of choking quickly and take immediate action. For example, in a conscious choking victim, you may observe them clutching their throat with their hands. Other signs may be difficulty in speaking and coughing. This training will teach you how to and the factors to consider when helping a conscious choking victim.
  14. Treatment for a Choking Baby - Most choking incidents in children are preventable when we carefully watch what they put in their mouths. However, one can save the baby's life by removing the object choking them if it happens. To do this, firmly support the baby's head and neck. Then perform five gentle back blows between their shoulder blades and five chest thrusts with two fingers at 1.5 inches. Call 911 immediately if this doesn't help. You'll get a clear demonstration of this during your training.
  15. Treatment for a Conscious Choking Child (1-7 years old) - To treat choking in a conscious child, first determine whether the choking is mild or severe. In the case of mild choking, stay near the child and encourage them to cough to dislodge the object stuck in their throat. If choking is severe and the child can't breathe or make a sound, act fast to remove the thing. You can use the Heimlich maneuver. Kneel behind the child at shoulder level and give them abdominal thrusts repeatedly until the object comes out.
  16. Treatment for an Unconscious Choking Child (1-7 years old) - If a child chokes and slips into unconsciousness, lay them down on a firm flat surface. You can scream for help and ask them to call 911 or get an AED if someone comes. Check for the child's breathing and immediately begin CPR. First, give 30 chest compressions, check the child's mouth for the object choking them, and remove it. Then give two rescue breaths, and watch if the chest rises. Continue with the 30 pushes and two breaths until the child responds or helps arrive.
  17. Use of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) - This topic will educate you on using an AED to revive someone who has just suffered cardiac arrest for adult and pediatric cases. Once you have an AED at hand, check for unresponsiveness in the victim. If there is no breathing or it appears abnormal, start CPR. If there is no pulse, attach the AED pads to the upper right chest and lower left chest. If advised, analyze the victim's heart rhythm and only press the "Shock" button. Learn more on this during training.
  18. Use of a mask/barrier device - Generally, as someone offering emergency assistance to a victim, you need to create a barrier between yourself and any moist area in the victim's body. Masks and other protective barriers help to prevent unsafe contamination that body fluids like saliva or blood can cause. When performing CPR and first aid to adults or children, rescuers should use protective gear like CPR mouth barriers, eye shields, face masks, and gloves. The training will educate you on the effective use of PPEs.
  19. Emergency Action Steps and Management - Various medical emergencies require an action plan to manage the situation and preserve lives. This topic will look at different emergencies and actions in each case. Emergency management includes steps like preventing the incident from happening and being prepared to handle the situation. Some of the emergencies we will explore are:
  20. How to handle Bleeding Control - Here, you will learn what to do during a bleeding emergency to control it and the situations that demand you to call 911 for help. The first aim of bleeding control is to make the blood clot stop flowing. You can do this by putting direct pressure on the affected area and covering it with a cloth that holds the blood and helps the components stick together to promote clotting. Always call for help if the bleeding does not stop within 10 minutes.
  21. Different types of shock - This course section will cover the different types and how to respond during such emergencies.
  22. Burns - Our course covers the treatment of various types of burns, including 3rd degree burns. It's crucial to remember that 3rd degree burns are severe and require immediate medical attention. While waiting for help to arrive, there are steps you can take to ensure the victim's safety and comfort.
  23. Types of Poisoning - Poisoning is classified based on what is causing it. This section will teach you about common poisoning and emergency responses. The main ones include Food poisoning, Alcohol poisoning, Carbon monoxide poisoning, Sun poisoning, Plant poisoning, and chemical poisoning. Most poisons enter the body through ingestion and others through breathing, the skin, injections, and things like snake bites.
  24. Types of Muscle Injuries - Muscle injuries result in pain and impaired movement. You will learn about types of muscle injury sprains caused by fast and intense muscle contraction. For example, strains happen when a muscle is stretched beyond its capacity, and Contusions happen when a huge impact lands on a muscle, compressing or tearing them up. In addition, muscle injuries can occur due to accidents like falling or activities like athletics.
  25. Types of Broken Bones/Fractures - This lesson will cover how fractures happen, including complete and partial ones. It will include types like a Stress fracture, Oblique fracture, Transverse fracture, Comminuted fracture, Greenstick fracture, Pathologic fracture, Stable fracture, Open fracture, Spiral fracture, Avulsion fracture, and Compression fracture, and Impacted fracture. You will learn the treatment procedures for fractures.
  26. Sudden Illness - Sudden illness often happens when someone's health deteriorates when you least expect it. Such situations call for emergency medical attention to save a life and restore the person's good health. Examples of cases of sudden illness are heart attack, seizures, coma, stroke, and fainting. These illnesses are due to underlying health conditions and often present some early warning signs. You will learn how to respond in case of a sudden illness in this course.
  27. Seizure - Seizures happen when there is an abrupt electrical disturbance in the brain. It affects someone's consciousness, movements, behavior, or feelings. Seizure presents itself in many ways with varying symptoms. It usually lasts for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. If a seizure lasts longer than 5 minutes, it becomes an emergency medical situation. You will learn more about how seizures are classified and when to see a doctor.
  28. Heart-Related Illness - Heart illnesses usually affect the heart's ability to work. Numerous heart complications are collectively referred to as heart-related illnesses. Examples are coronary heart disease caused by narrowing the heart's blood vessels, a heart attack that happens when the blood supply to one's heart gets blocked, and arrhythmia in abnormal heart rhythms. This course will cover more heat-related illnesses.
  29. Frostbite - When skin is exposed to cold or windy conditions, it becomes susceptible to frostbite. It presents itself as an injury on the skin and the tissues beneath. It primarily affects the fingers, toes, cheeks, nose, and ears. Symptoms will range from the skin that feels cold, numbed, inflamed, or discolored and a tingling feeling. We will explore this more in the course.
  30. Hypothermia - Like frostbite, hypothermia is another medical condition resulting from exposure to frigid temperatures. This topic will cover the symptoms of hypothermia, who is at high risk of being affected, and most importantly, what to do in such incidences. In essence, hypothermia refers to lower body temperatures due to someone's body losing more heat than is being produced. Hypothermia is a medical emergency that requires immediate medical attention.
  31. Exam - After going through all the above topics, the last thing will be an exam. To test your knowledge of CPR and First Aid techniques, you will take a multiple choice exam that you will have to score 70% to pass. Once you pass this exam, you will immediately download your temporary digital certificate of completion. In most cases, your physical card is mailed the same day.

Why Should You Learn to Use an AED?

Cardiac arrest is among the leading cause of death in the United States. Unfortunately, we currently don't have any other option than to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) to restore a normal heartbeat during cardiac arrest. You can certainly ask for help from trained medical professionals. However, because the typical response time for a first responder is 8-12 minutes, each minute of delay in performing CPR reduces the chances of survival by approximately 10%. Thus, it is necessary to have an automated external defibrillator (AED) available and know how to use it.
