CPR / AED
CPR training courses are divided into three levels, all levels inclusive of AED training. AEDs are machines that are able to detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to restart the heart. AED’s are a vital component of rescues for lay persons, health care providers and medical professionals. As part of the latest Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines by the American Heart Association, immediate chest compressions after a person has collapsed have been shown to increase the survival rates of victims.
Changes from A-B-C (airway, breathing, circulation) to C-A-B is one of the prominent changes in the BLS algorithm. Variation in techniques between adult, child, and infant patients are also included in the updated BLS guidelines.
The following video shows how to perform infant CPR.
- When applying chest compressions to an infant, use the “two-finger” technique. An infant’s ribs are more prone to fractures compared to adult ribs, so less force is used. Similar to adult compressions, allow the chest to recoil before pressing down again with two fingers.
- When ventilating the infant, use two “puffs” instead of full breaths.
- Be careful when opening the airway. Instead of pulling the head back as far as it comfortably can, tilt the infants head back so that the chin and the nose is parallel to the ground (also known as the “sniffing” position).
Combined First Aid and CPR Classes

Did You Know?
In diabetes type 1, the pancreas do not produce any insulin, a hormone that lowers circulating glucose levels by increasing cellular uptake. Type 1 diabetes are completely dependent on insulin to regulate their blood sugar. Typically, type 2 diabetes can be controlled with diet, exercise, and oral medication but if none of those work, insulin is also prescribed. Insulin can be long-acting, short-acting, or intermediate-acting, depending on the needs of the patient. It is injected into the subcutaneous tissue, preferably over the abdomen because of faster absorption in that area.
