Fast Facts about CPR/AED and First Aid Training

MyCPR NOW salutes our Veterans for their dedicated and selfless service to our Nation, on Veterans Day and always.

There is a lot to consider when you are deciding on whether to become CPR/AED and/or First Aid certified. First and foremost, you must be willing to complete the training along with having the ability and desire to help those in need when called upon and use the skills and knowledge you will gain from the online training videos and in-depth manuals.

CPR/AED and/or First Aid certification training includes ventilations, bag valve mask use, CPR/AED for adults, children and infants, pulse checks, and rescue breathing without compressions for people that have a pulse, obstructed airways as well as response to other medical and trauma emergencies.

Let's look at possible First Aid situations where you could be called to assist -- a victim having active seizures or convulsions, a victim suffering from an uncontrollable bleed, a victim choking in your presence, or a victim with minor cuts and scrapes--with proper online training you will have the confidence to know how to respond and what to do in each event. 

Getting your certification will enable you to safely place a seizure victim in the recovery position and assist them from harming themselves, how to use a tourniquet for victim with an uncontrollable bleed, apply the Heimlich Maneuver for a choking victim, or bandaging cuts and scrapes that might not require further care, and how to protect yourself from any infectious materials by wearing gloves or other equipment to protect yourself. There will be a time in your life that someone near you will need assistance, so make the commitment to be prepared.

The capabilities of online e-learning are convenient and customizable, so you can get certified whenever you want, in exactly the right CPR and First Aid skills that you need. By getting certified with MyCPR NOW, you will learn how to respond and provide assistance in different situations until emergency responders can arrive.
