Why Learn CPR?

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), is a life-saving technique used to help maintain blood flow to the brain and heart in an emergency situation. Since heart diseases are one of the leading causes of death at the moment, it is important for you to learn CPR, CPR training is crucial – even lifesaving – for everyone to know.

  1. CPR can save lives.

If someone experiences sudden cardiac arrest, it is essential to start CPR within minutes. Although emergency personnel send help as quickly as possible, if CPR is not initiated, within minutes, it could lead to a brain injury, damage and even death.

  1. It Improves Your Self-Confidence

By attending CPR classes, you’re not only equipped with the right tools, but you also develop the confidence you need to become a life saver rather than a bystander. Also, when there is a cardiac emergency, you can make the right decisions because you already have a CPR certification.

  1. CPR Gives A Better Chance of Full Recovery

When you perform CPR on any victim, you will be supplying blood to all vital organs (such as the brain) of the victim’s body and keeps the blood flowing. According to a study by everyday health, the chances of survival are doubled by giving CPR within the first two minutes of cardiac arrest.

  1. Anyone can learn CPR

Since anyone can learn CPR, then you should. According to the American heart association, most Americans are unable to perform CPR when there is a cardiac arrest victim either because it’s been a long time they practiced, or they don’t have the proper training required to perform CPR.

  1. More People Need to Learn CPR

It is a proven fact that approximately 30% of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from bystanders. That’s more than 70% of victims who are left without being given any medical attention. Lack of training is one of the reasons why most people couldn’t administer CPR to those victims.

  1. Mouth-To-Mouth Resuscitation Is Not Compulsory

For most adults who suffer from sudden cardiac arrest, hands-only CPR for them has proven to be as effective as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
