CPR Training Sonoma County

Are You Due?

April 1, 2016

From: Allen James

Some folks have read my January newsletter and have planned their CPR/First Aid training needs during the first quarter of 2016. Bravo to them! However, some of you may have forgotten the 2 year cycle of your CPR/First Aid training certifications. Are you due this year? Let us NOT have any last minute calendar surprises. We still have dates open for 2016, so call or email with any date requests or questions you may have.

Remember, we have quality instruction with a focus on orchestrating learning that includes a process on how to ”think” about an emergency and then providing a “tool box” of CPR and First Aid skills. This training prepares your employees to respond to both corporate and individual emergencies and enables them to prepare their families for natural disasters. What a wonderful benefit to pass onto your employees’ families.


    • Electronic Cigarettes, Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) and Other Vapor Products can explode and catch on fire much like the hover boards. Keep them away from children! (refer to April 1, 2015 newsletter)
    • Side lying if unresponsive but breathing (No more H.A.IN.E.S. position)(Pregnant woman on left side)
    • Bleeding: Consider the use of hemostatic dressings when direct pressure is not effective.
    • Allergic Reaction: Help the person use the EPI pin. A second dose is OK.
    • CPR compressions: Rate: 100-120 per minute. Avoid leaning between compressions.
    • S.A.M.P.L.E. is the standard for collecting victim information – great for Incident Reports.
    • Chest Wound: Apply pressure to stop bleeding; do not apply an airtight dressing
    • Knocked out tooth: Reimplant tooth taken from solution 30-120 minutes; whole milk, egg whites, coconut water, Propolis (bee glue), Hanks Balanced Salt-Solution.
    • Use cell phone to call 911 or local emergency number. Do not use when AED is working.
