Did you know that CPR is unlikely to restart the heart, but rather its purpose is to maintain a flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and the heart, thereby delaying tissue death and extending the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage. Defibrillation and advanced life support are usually needed to restart the heart.

How long is the class?
Class times vary from several hours to a full day depending on the size of the group and what level of training your group requires.  We can work with you to design a CPR AED First Aid Safety class that is right for your group.

The CPR School will assist you with federal and Florida OSHA compliance and other safety training requirements.  Safety compliance does not have to be expensive and time consuming – we make safety affordable and won’t waste your time.  The CPR School’s employee health and safety training programs are designed to provide your business with everything necessary for Safety Training and Compliance.  On site training courses anywhere in the state of Florida.

From small businesses to large corporations we can help with all of your safety needs.  All Florida companies can reduce costs and minimize risk exposure while improving employee morale with The CPR School’s Safety Certification Training Programs.  Compare and save.  When you perform a cost benefit analysis, comparing in-house training provided by The CPR School versus sending your staff to an outside training site or using expensive "non-profit" agencies for training you can easily save your organization 25% of your annual safety training budget!

Workplace Medical Emergencies happen every day and we can prepare your staff for these medical emergencies.  Our CPR, First Aid and AED classes are both educational and fun. Our philosophy is that learning should be fun. We feel that if you have fun, laugh and the CPR class is interesting you will enjoy yourself and will absorb and retain the material better. Another major difference, all of our instructors have actually performed CPR, First Aid and used AEDs on real people. Not all instructors have real world CPR First Aid AED experience, they simply read about CPR and First Aid in a book. We believe real world experience makes for a better instructor and believe you will too.  All of our courses are designed to comply with the most current OSHA regulations.  We offer onsite group safety training classes at your business or you can attend one of our group classes held at our Jupiter - Palm Beach County training classroom.

What medical emergencies does your CPR AED First Aid Safety class cover?
Our CPR AED and First Aid classes cover emergency medical care for a variety of different emergencies and life saving techniques including:
Legal/Ethical Concerns, Bloodborne Pathogens, Calling 911 and Emergency Medical Services, Scene Management and Patient Assessment, Bleeding, Cuts and Shock, Burns, Falls, Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Heart Attack, Drowning, Eye Injuries, Head and Face Injuries, Injuries to Muscles, Bones and Joints, Allergic Reactions and Respiratory Emergencies, Diabetic Emergencies, Seizures and Strokes, Heat Exhaustion and Hypothermia, Poisonings and Overdoses and a variety of other medical emergencies.

In addition to first aid treatment for medical emergencies what else do you cover?  Our classes are student driven.  By this I mean no 2 classes are alike.  We encourage the students to talk about medical emergencies that they have seen either on the job or at home.  We discuss proper treatment for these emergencies, what to do, and what not to do.  We go through many different scenarios and we also stress accident prevention.  As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.  Often we discover safety concerns that management was unaware of.  Through our classroom discussions, management is then able to take action to correct any safety issues.

How often should CPR and First Aid training occur?
The old expression use it or lose it comes to mind.  The American Heart Association CPR AED and First Aid certification cards are valid for a period of 2 years.  Every 2 years may be sufficient for the actual training classes but safety drills, similar to the fire drills we had in school should be conducted on a regular basis.  These drills apply what was learned in the classroom to real life scenarios that can occur on the job site.

What about a first aid kit?
A good first aid kit is very important however it does not necessarily mean signing an expensive service contract to fill your first aid kit or wall mounted first aid cabinet with overpriced bandages and aspirin.  In fact, I discourage having OTC medications in the company first aid kit.  Keeping your first aid kit simple is often best.  In addition to your PPE listed above you will want bandages, medical tape, burn gel, eye wash and an assortment of band aids in various sizes.  The items you include in your first aid kit may vary depending on the size and number of job sites, what special hazards may be present and the number of construction workers at each site.

Should my company purchase an AED – Automated External Defibrillator?
My answer is always “Yes”.  According to OSHA 13% of all workplace fatalities result from sudden cardiac arrest.  According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest claims about 340,000 lives each year – or around 1,000 every day in the United States.  Sudden cardiac arrest, which is the leading cause of death in the United States.  Cardiac arrest kills more people than breast cancer, lung cancer, and AIDS combined. Currently 95 percent of all cardiac arrest victims die.

Simply put, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) save lives.  Would you spend $2,000 if it saved an employee?  The answer is obviously yes.  You have smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, security cameras and other systems to save property why not put something in place that saves lives.  Think about this, how many fire extinguishers does your company own?  How many AEDs?  Fire extinguishers are designed to save property whereas an AED saves lives.  Life safety is far more important than saving property.

Do you sell AED's?
Yes.  We not only sell AED's but we can also train you how to use and maintain them and we sell replacement parts such as batteries and electrodes.  We service Physio Control - Medtronic, Cardiac Science, Zoll, Philips and Defibtech.  Call 561-762-0500 for prices.
