CPR for Healthcare Providers

The CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers (CPRO) program trains professional-level rescuers to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults, children and infants until more advanced medical personnel take over. This course has been recently updated to current International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines, including the American Red Cross Aquatic Guidelines and Best Practices. The Aquatic Guidelines and Best Practices are based on the results of scientific evidence evaluations and guideline reviews overseen by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council.

The term professional rescuer refers to those with a duty to act. These professions range from healthcare to public safety to athletic training and recreation, including lifeguards. Through these courses we're able to keep you up to date on the latest techniques, so you can maintain certifications and deliver the best possible care in an emergency. Course content includes knowledge and skills for providing emergency care for adults, children, and infants in Rapid Assessment, Giving Ventilations using a resuscitation mask, Using a Bag-Valve-Mask Resuscitator (two rescuers), CPR and AED (single-rescuer, two rescuer, and multiple-rescuer team response with 4 rescuers) and Obstructed Airway Care (responsive and unresponsive)
