McKinney, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) February 28, 2011
While many in the healthcare industry are still struggling with adapting to the new ECC guidelines and regulations for CPR curriculum, the American Academy of CPR and First Aid, Inc. has refreshed its offerings to showcase the most recent changes in emergency cardiovascular care.
A change to the BLS sequence (from A-B-C, or Airway-Breathing-Chest compressions, to C-A-B) means complete reeducation for individuals interested in online BLS certification.
“It might seem like a hassle to recertify or educate yourself on the CPR changes,” said Dr. Jehangir Gowani, medical director for the American Academy of CPR and First Aid, Inc. “But these courses are designed to help you save a life and be prepared in an emergency. The best way to be prepared is to learn about the changes before you need the knowledge.”
The familiar “look, listen and feel” for breathing approach has been eliminated, and adaptations to the compression speed and depth demonstrate the need for healthcare providers and community-minded individuals to take or retake CPR certification or first aid certification courses.
“Our new courses reflect the restructured ECC guidelines so that individuals can start learning them right away,” said Gowani. “With something that is literally of life or death importance, we felt that it was our duty to our customers to deliver on our promise to stay abreast of industry information and to pass that data on to them in the form of advanced courses.”
