This updated second edition now includes 'Hands-only CPR'. Nearly every two minutes, someone dies of sudden cardiac arrest. Automated external defibrillation (AED) could save a quarter of these lives. AED devices are showing up everywhere from industrial settings to shopping malls, and the demand for training is rising. And fortunately, the number of people trained in CPR grows every year too. National Safety Council programs offer the very latest techniques and AHA guidelines for CPR and meet OSHA standards for emergency care training in the workplace. And now we use Video Self Instruction to increase retention of the techniques. Our CPR and AED program teaches the average person the basics of emergency life support, and takes the fear out of AED use. We give you all the background information and skill testing you need to feel confident in the event of an emergency-and help save a life.
