Instructional Program (CIP)
THIS COURSE DOES NOT HAVE A FIRST AID COMPONENT. This program ensures that individuals with a duty to respond (public safety professionals, healthcare providers, etc.) have the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies. The course emphasizes active, hands-on learning and uses scenario-based activities to help participants learn how to provide one rescuer and two-rescuer CPR, multiple rescuer response, how to use an AED and relieve an obstructed airway for adult, child, and infant patients. Participants will learn how to check both a conscious and unconscious patient, and how to give effective ventilations to a patient experiencing a cardiac and/or respiratory arrest, including using a resuscitation mask and bag-valve-mask (BVM) resuscitator.
