Course Description

The American Heart Association’s Heartsaver First Aid and CPR/AED courses are the topics of study for this course. The Heartsaver course covers how to recognize and respond to life-threatening emergencies such as cardiac arrest, foreign-body airway obstruction, and breathing difficulty in children. It also covers the skills of CPR for victims of all ages, and use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). The First Aid course will cover first aid emergencies such as fainting, diabetes and low blood sugar, stroke, seizure, bleeding emergencies, shock, head and spine injuries, burns, bites and stings, temperature-related emergencies, poison emergencies, and bone, joint, and muscle injuries.

Upon successful completion of the course and its requirements, each student will receive a certification card for Heartsaver First Aid and CPR/AED. The certification card is valid for 2 years.

The course includes instruction on the anatomy of the lungs, heart and brain, as well as lifestyle habits that decrease risk factors for heart attack and stroke. In addition, there will be discussions related to health and wellness. Students will also learn about home preparedness kits and how to assemble a kit they can use at home.

The session runs the weeks of 6/27 and 7/5 (Mon-Thu/9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or 1:00-4:00 pm) and  7/5 – 7/8 (Tues-Thurs/9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or 1:00-4:00 pm) If you are taking Health 10 and Wellness 10 you should register for the afternoon option.
