Hillsborough CPR Training and Certification

 

Hillsborough County CPR Training & Certification Classes
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.151

Woman Performs CPR on ChildIn Hillsborough County CPR training & certification or CPR-AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training can make the difference between life and death during a medical emergency.

 

All CPR training & certification classes in Hillsborough County are not the same. Some companies in Hillsborough will try to tell you that they can be in and out in no time at all. The only thing this company wants is your money and they are selling you a CPR certification card to get it. 

 

It typically takes less than four hours to learn CPR in Hillsborough County and it is the most important medical course you can take. CPR is performed on victims who are not breathing and do not have a pulse. There is no greater emergency.  CPR has the effect of getting much-needed oxygen to the brain, where it can keep the nerves of the brain alive long enough for someone to get the patient's heart beating again.

 

The average national response time for “Emergency Rescue” is 5 to 10 minutes but could be as long as 20 minutes. Brain cells start dying immediately without oxygen and irreversible brain damage starts somewhere around 4 minutes. Without immediate CPR the chances of survival are small. The question that must be asked is; what kind of life style will that person lead if someone doesn’t intervene?

 

47% of all heart attack and stroke victims die before emergency rescue arrives.

How to choose a good training company in Hillsborough, ask questions:

  • Are you insured? 
  • How many manikins will you bring? 
  • What is the instructor to student ratio? 
  • Are you going over Universal Precautions in depth so we can protect ourselves? 
  • How much hands on time will we get? 
  • If you are doing CPR for children and infants, does the instructor evaluate everyone for that as well? 
  • Do we just watch a video and take a test? 
  • Does everyone get a CPR card? 
  • Does everyone in the class get hands-on training? 
  • Do you do scenario based training for the AED too? 
  • Do you go over calling 9-1-1? 

There should be manikins available for each student in the CPR training & certification class to practice doing chest compressions. You can't get the feel of doing compressions correctly by just watching a movie. Good instructors see how students learn and adjust to individual needs. 

 

Don't just get shown how an automated external defibrillator works, you want everyone in the class to have a chance at using one. Make sure you do scenario based training, that is when stress comes in and students learn how to deal with it.

 

Make sure your CPR training & certification class covers everything you need. If you're confused in any way, don't hesitate to ask your instructor to clear it up.
