Whether you are a health care provider or just have an interest in learning how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) Office of Continuing Education and Economic Development has a CPR course that can enhance or deliver knowledge of lifesaving skills.

Those planning on entering the medical field will find "CPR Basic Cardiac Life Support for the Health Care Provider" to be invaluable in teaching them state-of-the-art techniques for infant, child and adult CPR. One- and two-person CPR will be discussed along with the management of an obstructed airway and the use of the Automated, External Defibrillator. For those who have already obtained this certification, there is a 5-hour renewal class that will keep documentation current.

Two courses which focus on CPR for the young child are "CPR and First Aid for Infants
and Young Children" (an eight-hour course) and "CPR for Infants and Young Children" which is a six-hour course for child care providers. New to the program this summer is "Heartsaver CPR," which presents information about American Heart Association Chain of Survival and signs of heart attack, cardiac arrest, stroke and choking in adults infants and children. This course satisfies the requirement for daycare workers, lay rescuers and those who are expected to respond to emergencies or who need CPR credentials.

For more information on how you can keep current in this area of emergency care, call CCBC at 410-869-0296.
