CPR/AED & First Aid for Adult & Pediatric (child and infant) 10.4.16
with Andrew Eckman
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique to keep oxygenated blood flowing to vital organs of the body – especially the brain and heart – after cardiac arrest. Coupled with appropriate use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), many victims of sudden cardiac death may recover with minimal or no after-effects. This course will teach the participant the skills necessary to save a life: CPR/AED for adults, children, and infants, and how to deal with heart attack/cardiac arrest, stroke, and choking. The First Aid component teaches the participant to recognize and care for sudden illnesses like anaphylactic shock (severe, life-threatening allergic reactions), head and spinal injuries, chest and abdominal injuries, diabetic emergencies, poisoning, bites and stings, musculoskeletal injuries, bleeding control, burns, heat and cold emergencies, and seizures. Participants successfully completing the program will receive a two-year certification in these skills. This program has been approved for Child Care Providers (ME DHHS), Driver Education Instructors (ME BMV), IFW Guides, and maritime licensing through the United States Coast Guard. This program is presented by the Emergency Care and Safety Institute, in association with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). AAOS, the world’s largest medical organization of musculoskeletal specialists, is known as the original name in EMS publishing with the first EMS textbook ever in 1971, and ACEP is widely recognized as the leading name in all of emergency medicine.
