Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life saving procedure for providing oxygen and circulation to someone who has suffered a cardiac and respiratory arrest. The essentials of CPR (chest compression and mouth-to-mouth breathing) had been known for many, many years. But it was not until 1957 that CPR really came into being. Dr. Peter Safar, along with several other researchers and physicians, had been working and experimenting in an effort to combine chest compression and mouth-to-mouth breathing into an organized, effective resuscitation technique and in that year Dr Safar published the book The ABC of Resuscitation. CPR – in the basic form we know today – was now available. Many years later, a specific technique for assisting someone who is choking because of an obstructed airway was developed and this technique – the Heimlich Maneuver – is now included in CPR classes. As a medical professional, you will be required to take a CPR class and to learn the Heimlich Maneuver. You may also be instructed in the use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED). Learning how to perform CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver and how to use an AED is not difficult, you will have a lot of opportunity to practice CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver during the class: you will also be required to be re certified in these techniques every few years. But it is a good idea to review the techniques every so often because remembering CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver when you are in an emergency situation can be difficult and doing them correctly can save a life.

The information about new standards for CPR was very good, but I think some sort of chart for drugs used in ACLS would be helpful. All in all, a very good course. I agree that we need to refresh our skills and knowledge pertaining to this more frequently.
This was a great resource and easy to apply.
I chose this course because I needed CEs for my RN license. It was also very affordable compared to local training courses. It did take a while to get through all the material, but I liked how they presented the new recommendations in comparison with the old ones.
Great course. Clearly identified the old course of action vs the new and gave explanations why. Learned more here than in in-class courses I've taken.
I absolutely loved the course! A lot of reading, but was very interesting and easily understood. I mostly appreciate the comparisons of old recommendations against the newest recommendations. It helped me to easily pin point the major key differences that have changed since the years prior. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and easy recertification. Definitely will be back in 2 years!!
