05 Jun Why Learn CPR?
CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is the lifesaving technique used to restore oxygenated blood flow to the vital organs. Why learn CPR? Most people think that CPR is only necessary to know if your day-to-day involves risky situations. However, like the saying goes it is always “better to be safe than sorry,” Preparation is the first step to ensuring the health and safety of those around you.. You never know when you will need your new skill.

Could Save a Loved One
Helping a stranger takes a lot of courage. But helping a loved one simply takes love. Why learn CPR? A family dinner, a day at the pool, or even a trip to the mall could all end in an emergency situation. Although they are scary, the training that you will receive through learning CPR are priceless. Our services ensure that regardless of the situation, you have the skills necessary to feel confident during these scary scenarios.
You Don’t Have to do Mouth-to-Mouth
A common misconception is that to preform CPR you must do mouth-to-mouth. But, the 2010 guidelines state that chest compressions alone are shown to be effective with adults that have experienced cardiac arrest. CPR not only is crucial to know as a parent or guardian, but as an employee or employer as well. The need to use CPR could arise in any circumstance, and it is crucial to feel prepared in case something does arise.
