CPR/AED Training

Adult CPR/AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) Training is scheduled for this spring.  
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) claims the lives of close to 450,000 Americans each year. 95 percent of these victims die of ventricular fibrillation. Defibrillation can reverse SCA if it is delivered within a 10-minute window. By placing AEDs in our campus community, it is hoped that this “downtime” from call to electrical shock can be reduced, thus improving the chances of survival for the patient. The class is set for 10 a.m.-1 p.m. May 22 and is appropriate for both first-time attendees as well as anyone who needs recertification.
