2017 has arrived, but there’s still plenty of time to make a New Year’s resolution.
Searching for a New Year’s resolution that allows you to make a difference in your community? Resolve to earn your cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification in 2017 – you’ll be glad you did. In fact, CPR certification may enable you to become the difference between life and death for an individual who suffers sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
The American Heart Association (AHA) points out that cardiac arrest – an electrical malfunction that causes an irregular heartbeat – is the leading cause of death in the United States. In addition, the AHA notes that the survival of a cardiac arrest victim often depends on whether a CPR-certified individual is located nearby.
According to the AHA, nearly 90 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims will die. Conversely, administering CPR in the first few minutes after an individual suffers out-of-hospital cardiac arrest may double or triple a victim’s chances of survival.
Clearly, CPR certification could make a world of difference for you and members of your community. And with the right CPR certification program, you should have no trouble learning how to administer adult, child and infant CPR, finding out how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and much more.
