Family & Friends® CPR Course

Family & Friends® CPR

The American Heart Association (AHA) Family & Friends® CPR course is a valuable educational program designed for individuals who want to learn basic life-saving skills in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) use. It is suitable for anyone, including family members, friends, caregivers, and those without medical training, who want to be prepared to respond to cardiac emergencies in their communities.



Key components of the AHA Family & Friends® CPR course include:

  1. Hands-Only CPR: The course teaches the hands-only CPR technique, which is a simplified and effective approach for bystanders to provide chest compressions during a cardiac arrest emergency.

  2. AED Familiarization: Participants learn how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), an essential device for delivering electrical shocks to restore normal heart rhythms during sudden cardiac arrest.

  3. Infant and Child CPR: The program provides instruction on performing CPR on infants and children, with a focus on adapting techniques for different age groups.

  4. Choking Relief: Participants learn how to recognize and respond to choking in infants, children, and adults, including the Heimlich maneuver.

  5. Recognition of Cardiac Emergencies: The course covers how to recognize the signs of a cardiac arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies, ensuring that participants can respond quickly and appropriately.

  6. Interactive Learning: The AHA Family & Friends® CPR course utilizes interactive, video-based instruction and hands-on practice to engage participants and reinforce their skills and knowledge.

This course does not lead to formal certification but serves as an excellent introduction to the fundamental concepts of CPR and AED use. It is an excellent way for individuals to gain confidence and familiarity with life-saving techniques, making them better prepared to take immediate action when cardiac emergencies occur in their homes, workplaces, or communities.

The AHA Family & Friends® CPR course empowers participants to make a difference in critical situations, potentially saving lives until professional medical assistance arrives. By focusing on the basics of CPR and AED use, this course ensures that everyday individuals have the skills and knowledge to respond effectively to cardiac emergencies and contribute to better patient outcomes.
