Basic Life Support / Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – June 2024

June 8 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

Training is provided by Dr. Sapna Lohiya, an American Heart Association (AHA) certified instructor.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, commonly known as CPR, is an emergency procedure performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest. It is indicated in those who are unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing, for example, agonal respirations.
