Category: Lay Rescuer

CPR and AED certifications are broken down into two main categories: professional and lay rescuer. A lay rescuer is anyone who do not work in healthcare or is not medically trained.

American Heart Association (AHA) lay rescuer CPR is much more simplified and easier to perform. The emergencies you most likely will encounter are out of hospital, where medical equipment is not readily available.

This certification teaches single rescuer CPR, which requires only one person to successfully complete. However, even though lit is simplified, it is incredibly effective in increasing victim survival outcomes. This certification is typically required for teachers, construction workers and the general workplace environment.

This blog category covers a wide range of topics pertaining to CPR and AED training following AHA CPR guidelines.
