Variety of training courses
CPR training is available in three different levels (A, C, and HCP), inclusive of basic first aid and AED training. AEDs are machines able to detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to restart the heart. The use of these machines are included in all the levels because correct chest compressions and defibrillation within a 2-5 minute window after a person’s collapse has been found to increase the survival rates of victims of cardiac arrest. The latest Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines by the American Heart Association are focused on the updated techniques and pathways used during rescue.
AED reading is also one of the topics included during CPR training. To give you a head start on your AED training, read the short lesson below on Dysrhythmias, or a disorder involving the electrical impulses in the heart.
Caused by: hypoxia, acidosis, Digoxin toxicity, coronary artery disease (CAD), myocardial infarction
- Supraventricular tachycardia – causes inadequate pumping of blood because there is less time for the chambers of the heart ot fill with blood
- Premature atrial contraction – contraction of the atrium before the ventricles return to their resting state
- Atrial flutter – saw-toothed waves seen on the ECG
- Atrial fibrillation – inadequate contraction and relaxation of the atria, causing fibrillation
- Atrioventricular block – prolonged atrial depolarization which may cause the ventricles to stop contracting
The topic of dysrhythmias will be further discussed in the CPR training courses offered at Windsor First Aid.
Stand-alone classes are offered to trainees who do not want to undergo the entire CPR training course and just want first aid or CPR and AED training only. Other stand-alone classes are focused on health management of complications arising from accidents or hazards. Skill development plays a large part in first aid training, such as wound care and bandaging.
