With summer just a month away, now is the time to learn the basics of CPR and First Aid. At Help-A-Heart CPR we teach the Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid course while addressing the emergency care needs of the adult, child, and infant.
Consider taking this class as an investment in the safety of your family and friends. If you are going to be going to the pool, camping, swimming at the lake, and/or babysitting or taking care of a elderly family member or friend; now is the time to enroll in our upcoming classes.
Residents across San Antonio are gearing up for the summer holiday; and Instructor led courses are the best way to ensure that you are provided with the lifesaving skills that you may need. Most important, the use of the AED is taught in a step-by-step method ensuring that each and every student is equipped with the knowledge to act in a proactive manner. Empirical research has suggested that if a first responder is able to get an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on somebody after a cardiac incident within 45 seconds then that chance of survival increases to 92 percent.
Remember to enjoy your upcoming summer but be prepared for any emergency!
