CPR: Works for me.

As part of my orientation to being a full-fledged, full-time doctor, this week and last I've been getting certified in advanced life support for adults and children. While I certainly hope that I won't have to use these skills, I have been reminded of how important it is for everyone to learn how to give good, basic CPR and first aid. In the case of a serious event involving a child or adult, the quicker someone right there with them starts good CPR, the better their chances of survival. The American Red Cross gives classes that you can find out about here.

This is just one of many websites I found through Google that offers web-based CPR training you can do right at home.

The American Heart association is another organization that offers classes that can teach you how to respond in an emergency. The good thing about these classes is that they teach you the best way to do CPR and give you the confidence so that if something ever did happen, you would be able to respond calmly and do the right thing.

So, remember the Boy Scout motto, and Be Prepared! Get CPR certified.

Good idea! I used to be a school teacher. While it wasn't required of me to be CPR trained, it was recommended. I've never had to use the training, but I always liked that I knew how, just in case.

Thanks for this information. There are a number of sites out there. I would suggest doing some research to make sure that what you find works for you. If there are regulations for specific types of certification, make sure to check with your employer first.

Absolutely. Remember that the stuff has to be re-certified every two years, though.

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about information and love learning more on this. If possible,it is very helpful for me.
Web based CPR training is good but one should always seek to take practical training as this can help save a lot of lives.
