Changes to classes
The American Heart Association has approved an extension of the recognition of an AHA Provider Card beyond its renewal date, for up to 60 days, based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat. To align with this AHA recommendation, Ballad Health has made the decision to suspend all AHA courses for the next 60 days. This includes BLS, ACLS, PALS, and NRP courses.
There is a new Heartsaver First Aid CPR/AED book that is necessary to attend this class. The back of the book states: Guidelines 2015/CPR and ECC.
Who is the course for?
The Heartsaver First Aid CPR/AED Course is designed for lay rescuers who participate in a program of public access defibrillation (PAD).
Focus is on the needs of a lay responder who must perform CPR, relief of FBAO in the responsive victim and use of an AED.
Successful completion of the course is measured by verbal questions and skills evaluation.
Successful participants are issued an electronic course completion card.
