EVERYONE should know CPR/First Aid

Have you ever had to use CPR or First Aid?  As a healthcare provider it comes with the job, but I have had to use CPR in the community WAYYYY more than on the, in fact as others stood around helpless. It was a stark reminder - EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW BASIC CPR!!!

  1. I am so glad that you feel the passion for this enough to make a post and a giveaway. My hubby is an instructor for American Heart Association. He retired as a firefighter/EMT but wanted to continue teaching CPR. I am surprised how many people do not know CPR. I don't need the storage boxes..just wanted to stop by and say hi and thank you for such an important post :)

  4. I have a state registered in home daycare so I also have to saty trained in CPR/infant included & first aid. I am so thankful that I have not had to use it, but I am glad that I do know how if I needed it.
    I am a Circlet Sister. :) Thanks for posting this.

  5. I, too, am certified as I work in the school district. I need to be recertified this October. What a great idea to raise awareness.

    thanks for the opportunity,


  6. I am CPR certified...have been for many years. I am a nurse since 1978. I did CPR many times over my years as a hospital nurse, many times were years before they came out with all of the protective gear they have now. Nice topic!

  7. I am cpr certified. I am a RN and have had to use my skills in the hospital where I work. I fortunately did not need to use them in a local store when a 3 year old girl collapsed with a febrile seizure. Fortunately there was also a EMT there. We handled the situation until the ambulance arrived. Knowing CPR meant we could have saved that girl's life if required. Everyone else around was freaking out and could not have helped. I urge everyone I know to learn CPR, especially if they are around children. TrinaPomerenke P.S. I am a fellower circlette.

  8. What a great blog idea. I am a Paramedic, thus CPR is a must. I have done CPR well over a 100 times and have had a dozen saves. I think everyone should learn CPR, by the time an ambulance can get to you most times it is too late to recover pulses let alone brain function. ABCricut

  9. I am certified and certified through both American Heart and American Red Cross to instruct. I think I will take a look at the link you placed here.
