Life is full of unexpected events, but being prepared when someone is in danger is always best. This Friday, CPR and AED training classes will be held in Beavercreek to train adults how to give CPR and use an AED to save a life.
The class will take place this Friday, Sept. 14 in Beavercreek. The fee is $50 and the class starts at 11:00a.m. The address is 3195 Dayton-Xenia Rd, Suite 900, Beavercreek OH 45434.
The instructional class gives adults a chance to learn about reasoning and techniques in health emergencies.
According to the Mayo Clinic, CPR is a first aid technique that can be used by anyone who is certified to resuscitate a person whose heart or breathing has stopped. CPR is given by giving 30 compressions to the chest followed by two breaths though the mouth.
“For those who are not certified to give CPR, only chest compressions are recommended,” said nursing major Kim Drummond.
An AED is a device that can be used can to help treat cardiac arrest until emergency help arrives. The device can be found in nearly every campus building at Wright State, usually on the first floor.
“The AED comes in a box with two sticky pads to apply to the chest and it sends a shock to the heart to keep the person alive,” nursing major Alex Ohm said.
