Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or CPR, is a technique useful in a number on emergencies in which a person’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped. On April 1, 2016, an unlikely group of participants, among them a business major and an IT instructor/staff member, came together for CPR training. The class, scheduled for 4 hours, ran a little longer than anticipated from 12:30 PM to about 5:45 PM. But a good time was had by all and each participant successfully passed the written exam at the end of the class.
Cardiac arrests are more common than most people think. They can happen to anyone at any time. According to the American Heart Association, 70% of cardiac arrests occur at home. But the good news is that anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Keep an eye out for announcements for future CPR Training on campus.
