Afternoon: CPR Recertification:

with Mike Caffrey, Emergency Medical Technician, Emergency Medical Consulting

This course will provide re-certification for those previously certified in Basic Cardiac Life Support through the American Heart Association. The emphasis will be on skill performance and evaluation, with didactic portions for updating new guidelines written since your last certification. Basic Life Support skills to be reviewed include rescue breathing, one rescuer CPR, two rescuer CPR, and conscious and unconscious foreign body airway obstruction management for all age patients. In addition to American Heart Association content, this course will discuss realistic practical approaches for applying these skills in an emergency. Certification is dependent upon mastering the psychomotor skills and successful completion of a written examination. Previous CPR Certification is required. The course will include training in the use of an Automatic External Defibrillator.
