Holy Spirit to offer free CPR class (Heartsaver AED)
From: The Sentinel - Carlisle, PA
In honor of National CPR Awareness Week, Holy Spirit Health System will offer two free CPR classes on June 1.
American Heart Association-trained instructors will teach the classes in Holy Spirit Hospital’s auditorium.
The courses will teach participants the skills needed to successfully resuscitate the victim of cardiopulmonary arrest and to relieve a foreign body airway obstruction.
Participants will learn the risk factors and signs of a stroke, heart attack, cardiopulmonary arrest and airway obstruction, and how to correctly use an automated external defibrillator for adults and children.
The “Heartsaver AED” class will be offered to community members. The course is intended to teach the lay rescuer.
Participants may elect to learn adult and child CPR and/or infant CPR. The class begins at 9 a.m.
After successfully completing the course, each participant will receive a course completion card. To register for the free classes, call 972-4262. Register early as space is limited.
