Kickoff National CPR Awareness Week by registering for
a life-saving CPR class and receive a CPR Anytime® kit to take home and train your family
According to the American Heart Association, 70 percent of Americans report feeling helpless to act in a cardiac emergency. That statistic could hit close to home, since home is exactly where 80 percent of cardiac arrests will happen.
Cardiac arrest is the sudden loss of heart function. The chance of survival for a victim in cardiac arrest drops by 10 percent EVERY minute if immediate bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is not given. If we could all take action in a cardiac emergency by delivering CPR and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) we could make Houston a safer place to live.
Anyone can learn CPR, and everyone should. American Heart Association, Texas Arrhythmia Institute and Houston Methodist have joined forces to offer this training day to the Houston community.
We are offering four training sessions on Saturday, June 1, 2013:
Morning sessions for Hands-Only CPR (Free)
Hands-Only CPR training with Family & Friends CPR Anytime Personal Learning Program is for anyone who wants to learn basic CPR skills, choking relief and AED awareness, and does not need a course completion card to meet a job requirement (non-certification course). It is designed to be shared among close family and friends.
Pre-regsitration is closed.
5 hour afternoon session for Heartsaver CPR AED Certification Training ($25 per person)
Heartsaver CPR AED is for anyone with limited or no medical training, and is ideal for those who need a completion card in CPR and AED use to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. This course is not equivalent to a healthcare provider or BLS CPR course.
This session is full.
