Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is the method of
Basic Life Support (BLS). Hendrick Medical Center offers two separate
types of CPR Certification. Heartsaver AED CPR is basic life support
training for the non-licensed and non-medical professional personnel.
Healthcare Provider CPR is a more advanced basic life support course for
licensed healthcare professionals and healthcare students. Both of
these classes are held in a relaxed teaching environment conducive to
student learning and return demonstration of skills. Each class will
teach the student the skills needed for Adult, Child, and Infant CPR, as
well as foreign airway obstruction for the conscious and unconscious
victim. Hendrick Medical Center is an approved Training Center under the
American Heart Association. This allows all certifications to be valid
for a two- year period. Hendrick Medical Center also holds Healthcare
Provider CPR recertification classes for healthcare professionals who
have not allowed their certifications to expire. Classes are $60 for
Hendrick Medical Center Department of Education and Professional
Development works in cooperation with the American Heart Association to
provide education and information about prevention of heart disease,
stroke and injury, as well as action steps when an emergency arises.
Courses for the non-licensed layperson are structured in an everyday
language and conducted in a non-threatening, positive atmosphere. More
advanced life support courses offered to Hendrick Medical Center staff
and healthcare professionals include Advanced Cardiac Life Support
(ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). Information about
becoming a CPR instructor is also available.
