Important COVID-19 Notes: For the online-only lecture version of this class, you will need:
- a reliable, high-speed WiFi connection.
- at minimum, a tablet (like an iPad® or its Android equivalent).
- A full-size computer would be even better. But, to be perfectly clear, a mobile phone screen will be too small to be able read the slides and view the demonstrations clearly.
“Medical Emergencies — What Non-Professionals Can Do to Help” (online only) 1 hr.
- a.k.a. “What to Do Until Medical Help Arrives”
- no certification and no hands-on practice
- pre-recorded (can be started/stopped/paused, etc., as you like)
Looking for health care lecture topic for your conference? Or for a workplace “lunch and learn?” CPR-Twin Cities would be happy to provide you with a guest/keynote speaker or a presenter for a break-out session.
Although most of the curriculum will be based on information taught in CPR-Twin Cities, American Red Cross and American Heart Association classes, it is an abbreviated class. And, since there is no set curriculum, and little hands-on practice, there is no certification. As with all classes, we recommend that you read class descriptions and check with your employer, school, professional organization before registering, so you’re certain that this class will meet their requirements.
All of our lecture in-services will cover the basics of how to recognize a medical emergency and what to do until help arrives. If you wish, we will discuss the Good Samaritan Law, as well as how to protect yourself from disease transmission while giving first aid care. Other options include how to do hands-only CPR (without breaths) and/or how to perform the Heimlich maneuver.
In addition to these subjects, we are open to discussing how to recognize and what care to provide for a wide variety of injuries and sudden illnesses:
- heart attack
- cardiac arrest
- allergic reactions
- diabetic emergencies
- heat/cold emergencies
- spinal injuries
