American Heart Association “Heartsaver CPR AED” class

Target Audience

This non-healthcare CPR AED class (without first aid) is for any individual that is not a healthcare professional and is capable of taking the class as long as the individual does not need/ want first aid.  (First aid deals with injuries/ illnesses that are serious and/ or an emergency but does not require CPR AED.)  Personal trainers and people with new swimming pools, for example, typically take this class.

The American Heart Association states that the following individuals should take this class.  “Heartsaver courses are intended for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (e.g., OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.” (viewed 10-5-17, http://ahainstructornetwork.americanheart.org/idc/groups/ahaecc-public/@wcm/@ecc/documents/downloadable/ucm_490394.pdf)

Importance of ALL capable non-healthcare individuals to have this formal training in CPR AED

“According to the 2015 Guidelines Update, CPR training helps people learn the skills and develop the confidence to provide CPR when encountering a cardiac arrest victim. And while AEDs can be used by the public regardless of whether the responder has been trained, even minimal training improves performance, timeliness, and efficacy… Although much is being done to prevent death from heart problems, cardiac arrest is still one of the leading causes of death in the United States. The skills learned in this course will help you recognize cardiac arrest, get emergency care on the way quickly, and help the person until more advanced care arrives to take over.” (viewed 10-5-17, http://ahainstructornetwork.americanheart.org/idc/groups/ahaecc-public/@wcm/@ecc/documents/downloadable/ucm_490394.pdf)
