What is covered in the CPR  for Healthcare Providers Certification?
CPR Training as the core safety skill for emergency responders in healthcare. This course will equip you with exceptional knowledge of healthcare provider CPR. You can access the course anytime on a P.C., laptop, or mobile device, as long as you have internet access.
By the end of this training, course participants will be confident to handle any emergency requiring medical intervention through CPR. Below are the topics that we will cover comprehensively in this course:
  • Good Samaritan Laws and Chain of Survival - This course with familiarize participants with the Good Samaritan Laws. They will understand the legal protection available for bystanders who help victims. While at it, an unfortunate incident like an injury occurs due to the lifesaving procedure administration. We will explore the steps that make up the Chain of Survival.
  • Symptoms of Sudden Cardiac Arrest - The course participants will learn about sudden cardiac arrest symptoms to prepare them for what they need to observe to warrant immediate action. A cardiac emergency is a life-threatening condition that requires quick intervention to preserve life. Its symptoms and warning signals present themselves at least two weeks prior. They include a racing heartbeat, dizziness, and then fainting. Victims will lack a pulse and won't be breathing.
  • Universal Precautions - When the situation calls for you to act immediately by performing CPR, remember that your safety comes first. Universal precautions assert that anyone giving medical help needs to treat blood and other body fluids as potentially infectious. Therefore, using PPEs such as gloves, CPR masks, face shields, gowns, and proper hygiene after handling patients is highly recommended. This course will educate you more on this.
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) - You maybe familiar with how significant CPR is as a lifesaving skill in a wide range of emergencies where victims stop breathing and lose a pulse like a cardiac arrest, choking, or drowning. This course empowers you with sufficient skills needed to perform high-quality CPR correctly. We will tell you how to perform CPR on an adult, a child, or an infant CPR. Always remember to check the safety of the environment before starting CPR.
  • Adult - When performing CPR on an adult, apply the American Heart Association guidelines. Keep in mind the letters "CAB." "C," in this case, stands for Compressions. "A" stands for Airway, and "B" stands for Breathing. Give the victim compressions at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute. After every 30 compressions, open the victim's Airway by tilting their head, lifting their chin, and then giving two rescue breaths. Do this until there is movement or medical help arrives.
  • Child - The steps you follow when performing CPR on a child over one year to puberty are similar to what you do for an adult. Use the 30:2 ratio, which means the 30 rapid chest compressions, opening their Airway in between, and finally, the two rescue breaths. Always call 911 for vital professional medical help before or between the compressions. During CPR on a child, interruptions to chest compressions should be limited. Don't stop CPR until the victim wakes up or help gets to you.
  • Infant - Performing CPR on a baby aged below one year is different. The first thing you will need to do is scrutinize the situation. If you notice no response from the baby, begin CPR immediately, then call 911. You'll still use the CAB process but be very gentle with your compressions. In this course, we will demonstrate the CPR procedures for adults, children, and infants and answer all the questions you may have on this.
  • 1-rescuer CPR and AED for adult, child, and infant - If only one rescuer is available at the scene of an emergency, performing CPR has some rules for a seamless process. A single rescuer should give an adult, child, or infant 30 chest compressions and two rescue breaths and open them away in between. They can continue the 30:2 cycle for about 2 minutes before leaving the victim to call 911 and get an AED. Once an AED is available, a rescuer can follow its instructions and shock the victim before resuming CPR.
  • 2-rescuer CPR and AED for adult, child, and infant - Two rescuers make it easy for lifesavers to alternate between the compressions and rescue breaths. For example, in a 2-rescuer infant and child CPR, one rescuer can begin CPR immediately while another calls 911 and gets an AED. As one continues with compressions, the other should keep the Airway open and deliver ventilations at a ratio of 15:2. Use an AED when it arrives after five cycles of CPR.
  • Differences between adult, child, and infant rescue techniques - Due to differences in physiology between children and adults, CPR is done differently across these three age groups. For example, In adults, you call for help first before starting CPR, but in children, you start CPR immediately. When giving compressions in adults, use your hands and in infants, use two fingers. The depth of compressions varies. Learn more about these differences in the course.
  • Treatment for a Conscious Adult Choking Victim - Choking blocks a victim's Airway and limits their ability to breathe normally. Instead, use the abdominal thrusts technique for a conscious choking victim. Do this by positioning yourself behind them and wrapping your arms around their waist. Next, put your fist above the victim's navel and grasp it tightly with the other hand. Next, make rapid upward and inward thrusts with your fist and repeat the process until the object comes out. Call 911 if it doesn't work. Back blows are another alternative.
  1. Treatment for an Unconscious Adult Choking Victim - CPR is the primary way to intervene if a victim is unconscious due to choking. First, call your local emergency number before starting CPR. Next, lay the victim down on a firm flat surface and expose their chest. Check inside their mouth, and if you can, dislodge the object choking them. Start the compressions and rescue breaths to remove the thing and wake the person. The victim must get medical help even if they seem okay after this process.
  2. CPR with an Advanced Airway - The insertion of an advanced airway provides a more stable way of giving rescue breaths. Without it, rescuers have to use mouth-to-mouth masks. The recommendation for all victims is 100 - 120 compressions per minute. For example, in the absence of an advanced airway, an adult will get 30 compressions and two breaths. If an advanced airway is present, an adult victim should get one breath every 6 seconds. This course will explore this further.
  3. Compression-Only CPR - Rescuers are advised to provide compression-only CPR if they are unwilling to give rescue breaths or are untrained in CPR. You will learn to lay the victim on a stable flat surface, how to place the heel of your hand in the middle of their chest, and begin compressions rapidly (100-120 per minute) at a depth of at least 2 inches.
  4. Recovery Position - Recovery position refers to the recommended way of positioning a victim to ensure their Airway stays open; they can breathe easily and have reduced risks of inhaling liquids like vomit into their lungs. For an unconscious person still breathing normally, carefully roll them to their side, and open their Airway by tilting their head back and lifting their chin. In case of a spinal, head, or neck injury, do not move the victim until help arrives. You'll get finer details on the recovery position in this course.
  5. Conscious choking - In conscious choking, a victim can cough, speak and breathe, encouraging them to cough forcefully and continuously to dislodge the object choking them. If they cannot speak or cough, use the five and five approaches as first aid. Give them five back blows and five abdominal thrusts (Heimlich maneuver) repeatedly until the object dislodges. When assisting a pregnant or obese victim, place your hands slightly higher than usual.
  6. Treatment for a Choking Baby - To treat a choking baby aged below one year, pay attention to how you hold them first. Sit down and hold them face down. Support the baby's head and neck with your hand. Using the heel of your hand, gently thump the baby's back five times. Hopefully, the obstruction will jump out. If the baby is unconscious, combine the back blows with chest thrusts until breathing resumes or medical help arrives. Be very gentle to avoid damaging the baby's organs.
  7. Treatment for a Conscious Choking Child (1-7 years old) - When a child aged one to years suffers choking and is still conscious, use abdominal thrusts only. If the choking is less severe and the child can hear you, encourage them to cough the object out. In extreme cases, employ the Heimlich technique by standing behind the child at their level and wrapping your arms around their waist to perform the abdominal thrusts.
  8. Treatment for an Unconscious Choking Child (1-7 years old) - If a choking age between one and seven years passes out, call 911 immediately. As you wait for medical help to arrive, begin CPR as per the guidelines of pediatric life support. Start with the 30 chest compressions before checking for the object choking them, then do two rescue breaths. Only remove the object from the child's mouth if you can see it, and avoid "blind" sweeps. Continue with the process until medical assistance arrives at the scene.
  9. Use of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) - This course teaches you how to use an AED effectively. AEDs come with self-explanatory instructions, but you will learn how to interpret the instructions on AED devices.
  10. Use of a mask or barrier device - Universal precautions dictate that personal protection is necessary when assisting victims who require emergency medical intervention. With CPR, using barrier devices and masks is highly recommended to protect rescuers from infection exposure. Rescuers can use a flat plastic barrier d laid across the victim's mouth and nose with a hole at the center. Alternatively, they can use a mask with a one-way valve that fits over their nose and mouth.
  11. CPR Test with Healthcare Provider Standards - The last section will test your knowledge gained through the 16 modules. This certification training aims to give you the confidence to deal with real-life emergencies in healthcare. We recommend reviewing all modules to understand how to apply the BLS knowledge to different scenarios.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it Important to be Certified in CPR for Healthcare Providers?

If you're working as a medical emergency professional, you'll be able to use your CPER/AED certification to refresh your skills. Emergency Medical workers try to respond as fast as possible, but they have the skills needed to keep up with their job. In addition, when emergency victims are surrounded by trained professionals who can perform CPR, their chances of survival will increase. Conversely, without CPR-trained individuals, victims tend to have a much lower survival rate. That's why CPR/AED certification is essential for healthcare providers to brush up on their CPR training, even if you already took Healthcare CPR training courses years ago.

Is CPR HCP the same as BLS?

Basic Life Support is a different certification course vastly distinct from CPR-HCP, from the target audience to the curriculum and content. BLS certification course is focused on high-performance resuscitation and professional skills. It does not provide prevention education or address other first aid components like our CPR-HCP curriculum.

What is the difference between CPR level C and HCP?

The course content of CPR Level C and CPR-HCP is identical as it covers performing CPR in all age groups (adult/child/infant). The only difference is the audience. CPR Level C is training for Police officers, Firefighters, First Responders, Workplace First Aid Teams, and Lifeguards. At the same time, CPR HCP is a certification course for Physicians, nurses, paramedics, and Allied Healthcare Providers.

Why Should Healthcare Provider 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, and each minute of delay in performing CPR reduces the chances of survival by approximately 10%, having an automated external defibrillator (AED) available and knowing how to use it is necessary.
