CPR Certification

Sudden cardiac arrest outside a hospital is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. with more than 350,000 people each year affected. Over 85% of them die. Administering CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) can increase the chances of survival dramatically. That is why CPR certification is critical for every family.

Studies show that brain death begins within only four minutes after the heart stops beating. CPR helps the heart continue to pump blood throughout the body until an ambulance or health professional can arrive. In fact, the chances of surviving sudden cardiac arrest actually doubles when someone provides CPR in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest.

Yet too few people actually know how to administer CPR. It is estimated that fewer than 30% of those experiencing cardiac arrest will receive CPR from a bystander. Despite this, only 3% of Americans attend CPR classes each year. CPR certification is an important way to protect your family, friends, neighbors and anyone in the community who suffers cardiac arrest.

Safety First Jacksonville offers training in Infant CPR, as well as CPR classes for adults and children. CPR certification for health professionals also is available.

No Mouth-To-Mouth Resuscitation Required

Many people are concerned about giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, so they don’t take CPR training. The truth is, CPR guidelines changed in 2010 and no longer require mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. While it is included in the training, anyone who does not feel comfortable can still do hands-only CPR chest compressions. Chest compressions have been shown to be just as effective and it’s easy to learn.

Anyone Can Learn CPR

Did you know that more than 80% of cardiac arrests occur at home? CPR training can provide you with the tools necessary to keep blood and oxygen flowing to the brain while professional healthcare providers are on the way. CPR training is available in the Jacksonville region year-round with Safety First Jacksonville to give you the tools you need to save the life of a loved one, or even a stranger.

Becoming CPR certified is a simple but important way that you can learn a lifesaving skill that will help you feel confident in an emergency situation.
