The importance of CPR
CPR is one of the most important ways you can help save a life! If CPR is started within the first three minutes of cardiac arrest the chances of survival go up dramatically. Unfortunately all too often EMT’s arrive upon the scene to find people standing around not doing anything to help the victim.
CPR Works helps people understand the hows and whys of CPR and really helps people understand that they can make a difference. While CPR won’t bring back every victim it will save some. That person you help save just might be your parent, sibling, spouse, child, or co-worker. You will become that person’s hero!
CPR Works will help you gain confidence when dealing with emergencies as well as give you working knowledge about what CPR IS doing for the victim. During the lay-person CPR course you will earn a two-year certification in adult, child, and infant CPR as well as clearing obstructed airways in both the conscious and unconscious victims. The CPR class is three hours in length and each participant will have their own manikin to practice with throughout the course. Each participant will also have a practice CPRmask to use during the class so that they will know how it works during the real life situation. Individuals can register for any of the monthly scheduled classes by calling 541-760-7632 or by filling out the on-line registration form. Groups can schedule a date by contacting CPR WORKS, we can usually accommodate your date request if not we will work with you to come up with the next best option.
Fees: $40 per person
Travel Fee: If the class is outside a 50 mile radius of Corvallis there will be a $50.00 travel fee added to the class.
CPR Works has developed a Healthcare Provider certification that is based on the American Heart Association guidelines.
CPR Works provides certified classes and programs to get your company up and running with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).
CPR Works uses this course to teach participants the “common sense” approach to first aid.
