Why Learn CPR?
Earning your online CPR and AED certification could give you the chance to save a life.
Each year, over 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital. Studies have shown time and again that the sooner a patient receives CPR, the more likely they are to survive.
When oxygen stops flowing to the brain, you have only a four-minute window—sometimes less—to prevent brain damage. Emergency responders often can’t get to the scene fast enough.
That’s why we encourage everyone—not just healthcare providers or those who need it for their jobs—to get certified in CPR.
Just 5 minutes of AED training and 20 minutes of CPR training is enough to give you the skills you need to save someone’s life.
Why Learn Infant and Child CPR?
Choking injuries and deaths are surprisingly common in children and infants in the United States. These statistics may surprise you:
- Choking is the 4th leading cause of accidental death in children under four years old in the United States.
- Approximately 12,000 children per year need emergency room treatment for choking on food alone.
- About 5,900 children aged 18 and younger suffer a heart emergency each year outside of a hospital.
- Approximately one in five drowning victims is a child aged 14 or younger.
Why Learn to Use an AED?
Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the heart’s regular rhythm is disrupted. It can happen to anyone, at any age and in any state of health. There are often no warning signs.
An automatic electric defibrillator (AED) is the only way to restore the heart’s rhythm when this happens. AEDs are easy to operate; don’t need to have a medical background to use one.
A cardiac arrest patient has only a 4-minute window before brain damage starts to occur. Each minute the patient does not get external defibrillation, their likelihood of survival falls 10%.
But the national average emergency response time is 15 minutes. That’s why it’s so essential for bystanders to know how to use an AED—because you may be the first on the scene of an emergency.
