Home Health CPR & First Aid
Older adults are often medically fragile and experience serious health concerns, including Sudden Cardiac Arrest, strokes, and falls more often than any other population group. We provide home health caregivers with the necessary skills to evaluate an individual after an accident, slip, fall, or injury, including knowing when to call 911, and provide appropriate care until emergency personnel arrive.
A myocardial infarction (MI), commonly known as a heart attack, occurs when blood flow decreases or stops to a part of the heart, causing damage to the heart muscle. The most common symptom is chest pain or discomfort which may travel into the shoulder, arm, back, neck or jaw. This course teaches the caregiver how to recognize these symptoms dial 911, use an AED, perform CPR, and provide the necessary care until professional help arrives.
