CPR and AED Certification

Posted by: Lubas Medical on 19th March 2014

CPR and AED are two of the most commonly-used resuscitation techniques in the world. Between them, these two procedures have saved countless lives, and their ubiquity is largely due to their simplicity – anyone can master them!

By training with Lubas Medical, you can earn CPR and AED certification in one fell swoop. Click here to learn more about our CPR/AED course; in the meantime, here’s a little more information on these two life-saving procedures:

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

CPR is used every day to save the lives of people who have stopped breathing. By supplying oxygenated blood to the patient’s brain, it keeps them alive for long enough to be properly resuscitated. The procedure itself is fairly straightforward, and the basics can be learned in a couple of hours. Hundreds of thousands of ordinary people have acquired CPR certification – in fact, somebody’s life is probably being saved by CPR right now!

Automated External Defibrillation (AED)

AED isn’t quite as commonplace as CPR because it can’t be performed without a defibrillator device. Nevertheless, it’s very widely used, and it’s far more effective than hospital dramas would have you believe. Also, while CPR is more of a stalling tactic (it keeps you alive but generally won’t restart your heart), AED can actually get a heart beating again, so it’s good to be equipped with both skills!
