Why is CPR so important?
CPR is the critical link, that buys time between the first link (call 911), and the third link (using an AED).  The earlier you give CPR to a person in cardiac or respiratory arrest, the greater their chance of survival.  CPR keeps oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and heart until defibrillation and other advanced care can restore normal heart action.


Who should learn CPR?
Most often cardiac arrest occurs suddenly among middle-aged or elderly people at home.  This is why it is very important for family members and friends of people with suspected heart problems to learn CPR. Cardiac arrest is not restricted to any age group or location.  Although it is most common in the elderly, it can occur in infants, children, and adolescents.  For this reason, everyone should be prepared to respond to cardiac emergencies.  Candidates for CPR training include:

  • Responders to Workplace Emergencies
  • Health Club Staff and Trainers
  • Employers and Employees
  • Teachers and Students
  • Caretakers of Young and Old
  • Senior Citizens
  • Personal Use
