It allows providers to enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies through the review of BLS skills, advanced airway and ventilator techniques, emergency pharmacology, defibrillation-pacing-cardioversion, and Acute MI and stroke algorithms. While also covering the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions and stressing the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.

The course is designed for medical providers such as physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency.

This course is designed to aid the pediatric healthcare providers in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently and effectively manage critically ill infants and children. Participants will be taught to recognize and treat infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest, the systematic approach to pediatric assessment, effective respiratory management, defibrillation and synchronized cardioversion, intraosseous access and fluid bolus administration, and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

This class is recommended for: pediatricians, emergency physicians, family physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers who initiate and direct advanced life support in pediatric emergencies.

Friends and Family CPR

First Aid

The CPR for Family and Friends Course is modular and teaches rescuer skills in CPR and relief of choking caused by a foreign-body airway obstruction. It presents information about the signs of heart attack, cardiac arrest, stroke and choking in adults. The course also presents information on the signs of choking in infants and children, how to reduce risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and prevent the most common fatal injuries in infants and children.

Despite the world's efforts, accidents do occur. When they do, we are required to act quickly to perform first aid. The purpose of this course is to help participants identify and eliminate potentially hazardous conditions in their environment, recognize emergencies and make appropriate decisions for first aid care. It teaches skills that participants need to know in order to provide immediate care of a suddenly ill or injured person until more advanced medical care arrives.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Bloodborne Pathogens

This class teaches rescuers to recognize and provide care for victims of sudden cardiac arrest through the safe use of an automated external defibrillator, also called an AED. Each step of using an AED and will be demonstrated by the instructor as the steps are covered. The instructor will also explain what to do in the cases when “No Shock is Advised”. Another key element of this training will be learning to understand the difference between a Heart Attack and Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Each class participant will be given the opportunity to practice the AED skills they learn throughout the class. At the end of the course each person will need to complete the AED skills checklist to receive a certification card, or if for any reason they are unable to perform the steps, they may verbally go through the practice steps.

This course teaches employees how to protect themselves and others from being exposed to blood or blood-containing materials and is designed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for blood borne pathogens training when paired with site-specific instruction. This course is designed for anyone with a reasonable chance of coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens such as: correctional officers, childcare workers, security guards, maintenance workers, school personnel, hotel housekeepers, health and fitness club staff, tattoo artists, etc.
