Four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home. Are you prepared with CPR if a loved one suffers a cardiac emergency? The American Heart Association is making CPR training more accessible by offering blended learning, an online training tool.
To get started, go to the website, http://www.onlineAHA.org and click the “Courses” dropdown menu. Click on CPR & AED and select the appropriate Heartsaver® course. Once the online portion is complete, print the certificate and call Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s Health and Wellness staff at (812) 996-2399, option 1, to schedule a skills session with an AHA Instructor and complete your certification. The skill sessions are scheduled for 30 to 60 minutes and are offered for Heartcode® BLS for Health Care Providers, Heartsaver® CPR with AED, and Heartsaver® First Aid CPR with AED.
The skills session portion is $30 and will be located in the Health and Wellness Classroom at Memorial Southside Office, 1100 West 12th Avenue in Jasper.
For more information, call Memorial Hospital’s Health and Wellness department at (812) 996-2399, option 1, or toll free at (800) 852-7279, ext. 2399.
