CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is a life-saving technique that is performed in emergency situations when someone’s heart has stopped or they have stopped breathing. It involves a combination of chest compressions and rescue breaths to help maintain blood flow and oxygenation to vital organs until medical professionals arrive. Knowing how to perform CPR is incredibly beneficial as it can significantly increase a person’s chances of survival. By initiating immediate CPR, bystanders can keep the person alive until professional help arrives. CPR skills enable individuals to respond confidently and effectively during critical moments, potentially saving the life of a loved one, colleague, or even a stranger.
The American Red Cross pediatric CPR class is Saturday October 14th from 9 am to 2 pm at the Cincinnati Recreation Hirsch Recreation Center, 332 McAlpin Avenue. Again, the class is FREE, but space is limited and registration is required.
