Breakthrough Healthcare offers CPR training and certification to medical and nonmedical individuals, families, and groups.
What exactly is CPR? CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. It is a series of techniques that are designed to restore a heartbeat to anyone who has drowned, experienced a stroke, cardiac arrest, or had a heart attack. Since these life-or-death situations require fast action, having an in-depth understanding of the techniques is essential.
Through a combination of chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth ventilation, anyone administering CPR hopes to restore a pulse and regular breath to anyone who has fallen unconscious. In our CPR certification course, you will learn how to effectively implement the associated techniques to adults, children, and infants. You will learn how to identify a victim properly, how to administer the technique to different age groups and legal rights for certification holders. Our CPR certification course covers all the essentials thoroughly and will leave you feeling confident in your ability to act correctly when the need arises.
