CPR and First Aid follows the American Red Cross syllabi for Adult CPR, AED, and first aid. The course is taught using videotapes and handbooks, and students will practice established procedures in dealing with emergencies in CPR, the automatic external defibrillator, and first aid. Students demonstrate competency in these procedures using mannequins and classmates to pass the certification. The course will cover the following: recognizing emergencies, personal protection, what to do before providing care, prioritizing care, rescue breathing, cardiac emergencies, choking, administering CPR and the AED, sudden illness, wounds, bleeding, burns, heat emergencies, and injuries to bones, muscles, and joints. At the end of each unit, students take a written examination for American Red Cross certification.
