Knowing CPR empowers you to help someone in need.
The life you save will most likely be a loved one because four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home.
But wait, there’s more.
Knowing CPR can make the difference between life and death for a child, spouse, parent, or friend. Should your child choke on some food or a toy, or for some reason stops breathing, you will know what to do. After only seconds of a person being unable to breathe, irreversible brain damage begins, gradually progressing, and unless someone acts, a life could end. Anyone can help if they know what to do. It could be you. You need to stay calm, call emergency, and perform the CPR techniques you learned. Immediate action with CPR is the most effective way to save a life while you wait until an ambulance arrives.
CPR saves lives, why wouldn’t you want to know it?
Learning CPR has absolutely no disadvantages. You grow as a person, help your community, and change lives for the better. You do not need to be a medical professional to know or use CPR. All you need to do is attend CPR classes.
