Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or CPR, is an essential skill to know to increase the survivability of cardiac arrest patients. When a person's heart stops, known as cardiac arrest, the brain does not get any oxygen. Without oxygen, the brain suffers permanent damage up to and including death. This dying of brain tissue occurs within 4-6 minutes of the brain not receiving any oxygen. To be able to administer CPR at the onset of cardiac arrest could make a difference between life and death.
CPR Plus+ was started in 1987 and originally only provided CPR instruction. Today, training has expanded to include CPR for the adult, child, and infant, choking emergencies, First Responder First Aid, and instruction on using an Automatic External Defibrillator, or AED. CPR Plus+ certifies students to be proficient in the skills necessary to provide CPR when the emergency arises. We certify our students through the curriculum provided by the American Safety and Health Institute (A.S.H.I.) using the latest updates and techniques used today by professional medical personnel. All certification cards are issued the day of the class (pending successful completion) and students leave feeling competent that they can help someone if needed.
At CPR Plus+, we use only the most qualified instructors. All instructors are currently working as Firefighters in the greater Phoenix area and are also certified as either Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) or as Paramedics. With this experience, our instructors are able to bring “real life” scenarios to our classes and share those experiences with their students. In addition to teaching CPR, our instructors have also in the past taught classes on other topics such as EMT certification, Paramedic certification, First Responder certification, Technical Rescue Technician certification, and Arizona Professional Firefighter certification.
