As a health-care professional, you are expected to know how to perform basic lifesaving procedures in an emergency.  Such emergencies can occur anywhere on the streets, in your home, in a restaurant, or in the workplace.  In such an emergency, a person's life may depend upon your knowledge of what to do and upon your ability to do the procedure properly and quickly.

This course provides instruction which will enable you to remove an obstruction from a casualty's airway, restore breathing to a casualty who has stopped breathing, and restore blood circulation to a casualty whose heart has stopped beating.  Instruction is provided for performing these procedures for an adult casualty, a child, and an infant.  Study and know these procedures before you are faced with an emergency.
