Corporate/Civilian

Every day in our daily lives we are exposed to potentially life threatening events that can immediately affect you, a loved one, a co worker or friend, and bystander. From automobile accidents, life threatening bleeding, to Sudden Cardiac Arrest, immediate action or lack thereof can mean the difference between someone dying or living. The average response times for Fire/EMS personnel ranges between 3-6 minutes, possibly much longer depending on your location and other varying circumstances. To put that in perspective, an individual can bleed to death in as little as 2 minutes. Or for every minute that effective CPR/Defibrillation is not being performed when someone is in cardiac arrest, their success at possible survival drops 10% per minute with a dramatic increase in fatality after 5 minutes. So, you can see that when a traumatic or life threatening medical event takes place, the outcome of survivability depends on immediate and simplistic first aid or CPR/Defibrillation.

Here are a few facts relating to Sudden Cardiac Arrest per the AHA:

WHY LEARN CPR?
Cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time.

  • Nearly 383,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually, and 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home.
  • Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors.
  • Sudden cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack.
    • Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating.
    • A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle is blocked. A heart attack may cause cardiac arrest.

WHO CAN YOU SAVE WITH CPR?
The life you save with CPR is mostly likely to be a loved one.

  • Four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home.
  • Statistically speaking, if called on to administer CPR in an emergency, the life you save is likely to be someone at home: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
  • African-Americans are almost twice as likely to experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in another public location than Caucasians, and their survival rates are twice as poor as for Caucasians.

WHY TAKE ACTION?

  • Failure to act in a cardiac emergency can lead to unnecessary deaths.
  • Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander.
  • Sadly, less than eight percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.”

Unfortunately in today’s environment, workplace and school violence is a reality. From active shooter events to acts of terrorism, the majority of fatalities related to these events are PREVENTABLE deaths if someone would have simply acted with fast and efficient trauma intervention. At the same time, the safety of other coworkers and students are paramount as there are several variable factors associated with workplace and school violence that are vastly different from other typical environments. This class covers the realities involved with such events and the mitigating actions that need to be taken in order to save lives. We teach available options to take if found in such a volatile situation (Avoid, Deny, Defend), immediate first aid measures for victims, immediate control of bleeding, specific recommended trauma kits devoted to mass casualty events, and preventative security measures to keep employees safe. The reality is that while everyone is divided on the politics involved as to how to stop the
