Palm Beach CPR Training
In Palm Beach CPR training can
make the difference between life and death during a medical emergency. The victim's brain isn't getting oxygen and
their life is in your hands. They only have minutes to live....are you ready?
Palm Beach all CPR training & certification classes are not the same. In
Palm Beach and South Florida, some
companies will try to tell you that they can be in and out of a CPR training & certification class in no time
at all. The only thing this company wants is your money and they are selling you a CPR certification card to get
It typically takes less than four hours to learn
CPR in Palm Beach and it
is the most important medical course you can take. CPR is performed on victims who are not breathing and do
not have a pulse. There is no greater emergency. CPR has the effect of getting much-needed
oxygen to the brain, where it can keep the nerves of the brain alive long enough for someone to get the
patient's heart beating again.
Brain cells start dying
immediately without oxygen and irreversible brain damage starts somewhere around 4 minutes. Without immediate
CPR the chances of survival are small. The
question that must be asked is; what kind of life style will that person lead if someone doesn’t
47% of all heart attack and stroke
victims die before emergency rescue arrives.
Is your Palm Beach based
business prepared? If you or a coworker suffers from a heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest, will someone be
prepared to perform CPR and use an AED or provide emergency oxygen? We come
to your Palm Beach facility and train your staff so they are prepared in the event of an emergency!
In the event of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), the victim requires an electric shock from a defibrillator to the
heart. It is the only known thing that a lay person can do that will
save their life. Using an AED & starting Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) within the first
two minutes of cardiac arrest improves the victim’s chances of survival by 90 percent. For each minute that passes,
chances of survival decrease approximately 10 percent.
The average national response time for “Emergency Rescue” is 5 to 10 minutes in an urban area. If 9-1-1 rescuers
arrive at your Palm Beach location in 5 minutes, by the time they get their equipment, get in your building, get to
the victim, and analyze the situation it will be several more minutes before the first Life Saving Shock is
delivered. If chances of survival go down nearly 10% per minute, can you afford to wait for Emergency
Rescue? Don't wait, become a link in the "Chain of Survival."
Getting certified in our Palm Beach CPR/AED training & certification class is fun and

well as Pulse America’s hands on style of training to help make your workplace safer.
Cardiac Arrest and Heart Attack
cardiac arrests are due to abnormal heart rhythms called arrhythmias. The most common arrhythmia is ventricular
fibrillation (VF), in which the heart’s electrical impulses suddenly become chaotic and ineffective. Blood flow to
the brain abruptly stops; the victim then collapses and quickly loses consciousness. Death usually follows unless a
normal heart rhythm is restored within minutes.
A heart attack is different from sudden cardiac arrest although sometimes a heart attack
can trigger SCA. A heart attack occurs when one of the heart’s major blood vessels becomes blocked, shutting off
blood flow and oxygen to the heart muscle. Without oxygen the heart muscle starts to die, producing pain and
other symptoms. A heart attack may lead to a cardiac arrest.
In simple terms, a heart attack is a “plumbing” problem
caused when a vessel becomes clogged. Sudden cardiac arrest is an electrical problem. Unlike a
sudden cardiac arrest victim, a heart attack victim is often
awake and can talk despite having chest pain or pressure. The most common symptom of a heart attack is severe
pain or pressure in the center of the chest.
Sudden cardiac arrest strikes people of all ages and fitness levels,
usually without warning. Many of these lives could be saved if:
ders act promptly to phone
911 and begin CPR, and
personnel provide defibrillation within 3 to 5 minutes.
More people survive sudden cardiac arrest
when a certain sequence of events happens as quickly as possible. This series of steps is called the Chain of
Access: Recognizing that a
cardiovascular emergency exists and immediately notifying the EMS (Emergency Medical Services) system
is a key element. In most communities, phoning 911 activating the EMS system.
CPR: Starting CPR immediately after
cardiac arrest to circulate oxygen-rich blood to vital organs buys time for the victim until
defibrillation can be given.
Defibrillation: Defibrillation of
the victim as soon as equipment arrives.
Advanced Care: Paramedics arriving
quickly to administer advanced lifesaving interventions.
