Heart attacks, also known as myocardial infarctions, are caused by a blockage which inhibits the flow of blood to or within the heart. The lack of blood flow will cause the heart muscle tissue to die. Heart attacks can last for minutes or days. may or may not lead to cardiac arrest. You will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and why it’s important to act quickly.
People in cardiac arrest often present a common arrhythmia called ventricular fibrillation. During ventricular fibrillation, the heart's lower chambers suddenly start beating chaotically and does not pump blood. Biological death occurs within minutes after the heart stops. Cardiac arrest may be reversed if cardiopulmonary resuscitation is performed immediately and a defibrillator is used to shock the heart and restore a normal heart rhythm within 3-5 minutes.
Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is provided to victims who are in Cardiac Arrest. Rescue Breathing provides oxygen to the bloodstream of a victim who is unable to adequately breathe. Chest compressions circulate the oxygen rich blood to throughout the victim’s body when their heart is unable to pump blood. The purpose of CPR is to provide an oxygen rich supply of blood to the major organs, to buy time until Defibrillation and Advanced Care can be administered.
FAQ's About Online CPR Renewals
What about AED’s or Automated External Defibrillators? One of the biggest advancement in first responder cardiac life support is the Automated External Defibrillator. When a victim is suffering from ventricular fibrillation or similar shockable rhythms, the AED can help get the heart back to a normal sinus rhythm. By sending an electrical shock through the heart, the AED can stop the irregular contractions and electrical impulses causing cardiac arrest. The best thing about these devices is that anyone can be trained to use them. AED certification can be done quickly and easily online with our accredited classes.
Why choose online training? There are many benefits. Online classes are the fastest and most convenient way to learn. Classes are available on your schedule, anytime you like. You can get your safety certifications online in minutes instead of hours in a classroom. We offer 24/7 support including weekends and holidays. An instructor is only a click away if you have a question. You can learn at your own pace. If you didn’t quite understand something, simply go back. Review all or part of the class as much as you like.
Is Online Training as good as in a classroom? The curriculum for our online courses is the same as the courses given in a classroom. We cover the same subjects and material. Most students actually report that they learn more online than they did in a classroom. This is because you have the ability to learn at your own pace. You can start, stop and skip around as much as you like. If you miss something or have a question, you can go back and review whatever course materials you like. Then take the test only when you’re ready. You can even re-take the test as many times as you like. If you do not pass the test the first time, you can go back and re-take the missed questions without having to retake the entire test.
Do I need special computer, device or software? There is no special software to download. Our classes have been tested and certified on all current devices. You can take the course on any computer, tablet or smartphone. Our site has been tested on devices running Windows, Mac OS X, Android, Fire, Apple iOS, Chrome OS and Linux. An internet connection is required for all classes. If you choose to demonstrate your skills with an online instructor, a webcam or video camera is required.
What about the skills demonstration? A skills demonstration is not required for certification. However, your school or employer may require that you demonstrate your proficiency in CPR. There are several options available if you are required to perform a CPR skills demonstration. You can meet with a local instructor to take a practical skills exam. You can also demonstrate your skills to an online instructor. We can send you a CPR mannequin for practice and demonstration. A computer or phone with video capability is required.
How long will it take to certify online? You can get your renewal certification in minutes or your new certification in less than an hour. Why spend up to 9 hours in a classroom for a full class or 4.5 hours for a renewal? But our online classes let you work at your own pace.
About Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation
Changes in CPR - There have been many changes in the way CPR is performed. During the assessment we now teach CAB(D) which stands for Circulation, Airway, Breathing and Defibrillation. This is due to many studies focusing on cardiac arrest survival rates and ECC (Emergency Cardiovascular Care). In the past, focus was given on opening the victim’s airway and providing oxygen. The ABC’s were taught which stands for Airway, Breathing and Circulation. The new focus on providing quality chest compressions and early defibrillation has proven to increase SCA survival rates. Other changes can be found on our Key Numbers Chart. The ratio of compressions to ventilations has changed, it is now 30:2 for nearly all types of victims. CPR is now performed for 2 minutes before pausing to reassess the victim.
Determine Responsiveness and Activate EMS - You will learn how to determine if your victim is in need of emergency medical attention. If the victim in unresponsive it is important to call 911 or activate your emergency medical services. You will also learn how to asses your victim. Determine if your victim is breathing or if signs of circulation are present.
You’ll learn how to Perform CPR and save a life. Immediate quality CPR and defibrillation within 3-5 minutes will give your victim the best chance of survival. It’s important to do effective chest compressions. You will also learn the correct way to provide ventilations to supply much needed oxygen to the victim.
Rescue Breathing - If your victim has a pulse or signs of circulation but is not breathing adequately, rescue breathing will help supply needed oxygen to prevent the victim from going into cardiac arrest. This class will cover the correct method of performing rescue breathing and when it is required.
Spinal and Cervical Injuries can complicate resuscitation efforts. It’s important to know what to do and what takes precedence. You will learn when to suspect spinal/cervical injury, how to correctly open a victim’s airway and how to help the victim while minimizing the risk of additional injury.
Re-assessment should happen once about every 2 minutes. Even if your victim is breathing and has a pulse. If you place the victim in the correct recovery position, you will be able to monitor the victim and re-assess while waiting for EMS to arrive.
2 Rescuer CPR - Professional level courses such as Healthcare Provider BLS include 2 Rescuer CPR. You will learn how to properly perform this method and the additional benefits to having 2 rescuers working together.
Our renewal classes include use of AED’s or Automated External Defibrillators. One of the biggest advancement in first responder cardiac life support is the Automated External Defibrillator. When a victim is suffering from ventricular fibrillation or similar shockable rhythms, the AED can help get the heart back to a normal sinus rhythm. By sending an electrical shock through the heart, the AED can stop the irregular contractions and electrical impulses causing cardiac arrest. The best thing about these devices is that anyone can be trained to use them. AED certification can be done quickly and easily online with our accredited classes.
In this course you will learn how to deal with a Foreign Body Airway Obstruction or Choking victim. You will be more likely to use this life saving skill outside of a hospital than anything else you will learn in this course. The Heimlich Maneuver or Sub-Diaphragmatic Thrusts are very effective and easy to perform. You will learn the correct methods to assist choking victims.
Medical Legal - This course also covers the medical/legal aspects of performing CPR. Most states have comprehensive good samaritan laws to protect potential rescuers. It’s important to know what you can and cannot do to help a victim.
Lay Rescuer or Hands-Only CPR - Almost anyone can perform CPR. Studies have shown that over 350,000 people suffer sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital setting. If everyone were to learn CPR, many of these lives could be saved. The ECC studies have shown that compression only CPR is very effective. There are only 2 simple steps. Step 1 is to call 9-1-1. It’s important to activate EMS and get help on the way. The second step is to do chest compressions. Press hard and fast. Perform chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute. Be sure to push down about 2 inches. Keep going until EMS arrives and takes over. Survival rates increase dramatically when CPR is performed. Whether you take the professional course or not, by performing CPR to the best of your ability can save a life.
