LIFEGUARD TRAINING NY
"Take A Class For Life"
Our CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer class is held on Long Island NY, this includes Nassau and Suffolk County NY. This class is taught by New York State Department Of Health approved instructors.
Emergency rescuers like you may have been hoping to become CPR and AED certified. Many institutions are ready to help but it’s all up to you to chase the dream.
Professional rescuers are duty-bound to assist in the best way they can during medical emergencies. Therefore, it is only fitting that mastery of emergency response principles and techniques is achieved. Programs for this group of professionals are designed for in-depth learning with much emphasis on AED and CPR.
The program is structured specifically for those who primarily respond to medical emergencies as a professional rescuer. The dispensation of their duties assures that apart from First Aid treatment, victims who may have suffered cardiac arrest also receive immediate and proper CPR while the medical team is on their way to the scene.
Professionals who are likely participants in the program may include Lifeguards, EMT personnel, flight crews, firefighters, lifeguards, nurses, and law enforcement agents.
Program topics of the course includes:
If you’re a professional rescuer about to enroll in this program, here are some of the basics you are expected to learn:
How to spot cardiac arrest and other emergency conditions among different age groups
CPR techniques with and without a partner
Proper use of automated external defibrillator on victims who had cardiac arrest
Proper use of protective gear and equipment to prevent diseases from spreading
How to make an initial evaluation
Proper disposal of protective hand gloves

On the other hand, statistics typically discussed in class may include the following:
Number of compressions for every two breaths administered by one and two rescuer CPR whether it’s a child or an infant;
Rate (per minute) at which compressions are administered;
Depth of compression for adults
Length (in seconds) at which breaths should be administered
These data are important for professional rescuers and so knowing which ones will come out in your exams is a matter of good judgment. Again, if these numbers become part of the discussion, then it is likely that they will appear in your exam.
