What Is CPR and Why Should I Learn It at Palm Desert Resuscitation Education (PDRE)?

You do not have to be a healthcare worker or an emergency responder but by just being a good Samaritan or a bystander, then you can actually perform CPR to double or triple the chance of survival after cardiac arrest.

Find a CPR Certification Class
Looking for CPR Classes, First Aid, BLS, ACLS, and PALS Certification and Recertification Courses in or around Palm Desert, California? You’re probably wondering why would you ever need to take a CPR class? Whether you’re in the medical field, who may need an AHA certification to work in the hospital, clinic, or other healthcare setting; you’re a personal trainer requiring an AHA certification to help physically transform your clients; you’re a lifeguard who might need to resuscitate someone who drowns in the swimming pool; parent who finds their child or infant unresponsive; you’re involved in an unfortunate motor vehicle accident and need to assist a person who is not breathing and/or do not have a pulse; you’re a Good Samaritan who just happens to be in a scene where a person has passed out; or you’re an individual who has no medical training or education whatsoever and want to help an individual you care about, you should know that every year there are approximately 383,000 out of hospital cardiac pulmonary arrest. That’s more than 1,000 a day! This fact alone is enough for anyone to understand that taking a CPR class is indispensable and desirable in any medical emergency that may or may not happen at all. However, with at least 1,000 people per day having a cardiac pulmonary arrest, there’s a small chance that your CPR training can make a significant difference.
You don’t have to be advanced healthcare provider to take an AHA course that teaches you how to call help right away, try to revive someone with chest compressions and/or ventilations and then use an automated external defibrillator (AED) to save someone’s life in cardiac pulmonary arrest. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

How Long Does Help Arrive After You Call 911?
Did you actually know that it takes 7-10 minutes for the emergency medical services, paramedics, and/or first responders to come to an emergency situation after calling 911? This means that if someone is having a cardiac pulmonary arrest, his or her heart has stopped beating. It is only common sense that those 7-10 minutes are a critical time that requires you as a rescuer to pump the heart by giving prompt and high-quality chest compressions to prevent the victim from circling down the drain because of decreased cardiac output and organ perfusion. It’s all about blood flow during the first few minutes of cardiac pulmonary arrest…so start pumping the chest! Timing is key!

Where Do All of These Life Saving Facts Come From?
The American Heart Association (AHA) actually conducts more research than any other association in the United States except only for the United States government. The AHA is one of the most research-based and outcome-based organizations in the world and is, by far, one of the most reputable sources for long-term prevention and acute management of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Thus, as an AHA training site, PDRE is here to promote the most up-to-date AHA guidelines and recommendations to increase the survival rates of persons who have cardiopulmonary arrest and stroke. Because of the fact that the AHA changes their recommendations and guidelines every 5 years, PDRE is always cognizant of the newest updated life saving data and tries to incorporate these recommendations and guidelines in subsequent lectures.
How Do PDRE Instructors Teach the Courses?
Through PowerPoint presentations, video-based learning, practice while watching, and more practice sessions (as needed), the students will be immersed by the most enjoyable AHA course content at PDRE.
