CPR is a form of basic life support that combines chest compressions and ventilation to keep a person’s brain alive when he or she is in cardiac arrest. According to the CDC, about 350,000 cardiac arrests occur annually, and only about 70% happen at home.
Nearly 90% of those who experience cardiac arrest outside the hospital die, but with CPR, odds of survival can double or triple.
Our first CPR class is scheduled for 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30, at our Fort Myers campus. It costs $65, which includes course materials, training and an electronic course completion card.
