CPR In Control
Cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time. They occur when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating. Nearly 80 percent of cardiac arrests happen at home, but only 32 percent of people who suffer cardiac arrests outside a hospital survive. Fortunately, you can influence the odds in this daunting situation. Effective and immediate bystander CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) can double the victim’s chance of survival. CPR in Control prepares members of the Santa Clarita Valley to quickly and properly administer this procedure, which could mean the difference between life and death for a loved one.
Santa Clarita Valley’s CPR in Control offers several different CPR and First Aid classes to meet the needs of the most diverse clientele possible. Classes can be taught in English and Spanish, and cover a variety of topics to provide comprehensive instruction that leaves all students mentally and physically prepared to perform first aid procedures. They include the Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) course, designed to meet the regulatory requirements for childcare workers in the United States, and the Heartsaver First Aid course, which teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services arrives (EMS). CPR in Control offers classes for healthcare professionals, as well as classes that teach basic CPR skills. These basic courses are perfect for anyone who wants to learn when and how to administer vital first aid procedures.

CPR Increases Victims Chances Of Survival
Cardiac arrests happen without warning, and can happen to anyone. Victims may appear healthy, and have no known heart disease or other risk factors. If bystander CPR is not provided, a sudden cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival fall 7 percent to 10 percent for every minute of delay until defibrillation. Few attempts at resuscitation are successful if CPR and defibrillation are not provided within minutes of collapse. Emergency assistance is the victim’s best chance of survival in such a life-threatening situation. With Santa Clarita Valley’s CPR in Control, bystanders can empower themselves to deliver basic life support skills in a personable and welcoming environment.
