The Value of Knowing CPR

You can’t underestimate the value of knowing CPR. These skills can save someone’s life.

First, if your job involves working with elderly persons, CPR is essential. Even if a patient is otherwise healthy, you can never know in advance when he might experience an emergency. Your ability to act quickly, and use the skill that’s appropriate to the situation, can prevent a needless tragedy.

Second, CPR can save lives in other situations, too. A member of your family or a guest in your home may have an unexpected emergency. You may be out in public and encounter an automobile accident. There can be countless examples of people needing immediate assistance before an ambulance arrives.

In any of these situations, a number of factors are involved. You need to know the right technique, and be able to perform it correctly. You must also be able to act promptly, without fear or hesitation.

This is why CPR is a standard part of CNA and Home Health Aide training courses. When you take the courses in person, you’ll have benefits you can’t receive from online training courses. From learning each technique, step-by-step, from a qualified instructor, to having the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned, these benefits can only occur from classroom training.

Health care is one of the most important jobs you’ll ever have in your lifetime. While each day provides the opportunity to improve someone’s quality of life, there’s much you’ll learn that extends beyond the facility or private home where you work.

When you learn CPR, you’ll be in the position to help when help is needed. You’ll have confidence in your abilities, both in and out of the workplace. If you think about it, there’s nothing more important than being able to save a person’s life before medical personnel arrives.

    As my kids start getting older, my husband and I have mentioned that we think it would be a good idea to make sure our kids know some basics of first aid. I think knowing CPR would definitely be on the list of things they should know. I like how you point out that CPR is a way to offer immediate assistance before an ambulance arrives in many different situations.
