Overview/Description
Emergencies requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can and do occur without warning. It is important that you know the basic emergency techniques for recognizing and treating failures of the respiratory system and heart. This course will focus on the three procedures of basic life support: restoring circulation, maintaining an open airway, and restoring breathing. Note: this training should not be used as the primary basis for any CPR certification. It is intended to provide the learner with knowledge-based training only. This training should be accompanied by a performance-based component provided by a certified CPR instructor. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to recall basic life support techniques used to restore and maintain a victim's circulation, recall basic life support techniques to open a victim's airway, and recall basic life support techniques used to restore and maintain breathing. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
