Frequently asked questions for HeartSaver CPR, AED & First Aid:
CPR Certification is a course to learn how to react to a cardiac and/or respiratory arrest. A certification is issued after you have demonstrated proper knowledge of this technique.
To put it simply, you learn how to keep someone alive when they have stopped breathing and their heart stopped beating (normally).
CPR was created in multiple stages. In the 1700s billows were used for breathing.
Mouth to Mouth was proven to be an effective resuscitation effort by Dr. Safar in 1956.
By 1957 the first external defibrillator was in prototype from three doctors at John Hopkins.
But it wasn’t until 1960 when Dr. Safar and the team from John Hopkins combined mouth to mouth with chest compressions to create modern-day CPR.
