Pediatric CPR and First Aid Blended Learning
American Heart Association Pediatric CPR First Aid Certification (Blended Learning)
The Blended Learning Pediatric CPR First Aid class is a hybrid learning course that consists of an online Pediatric CPR First Aid class followed by an in-person Skills Session with an AHA instructor. The Skills Session is a hands-on test and demonstration of the skills the student learned during the online class. This Blended Learning class is appropriate for both initial and renewal Pediatric CPR First Aid certification.
The AHA Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR AED Blended Learning course covers training and certification in CPR, AED use, choking management, and first aid for children and infants (adults are an optional component).
The following topics are covered:
- CPR and AED use
- Allergic reactions and use of an EpiPen
- Asthma and other respiratory emergencies
- First aid basics
- Injuries to the head, eyes, neck, spine, mouth, and teeth
- Controlling bleeding, bandaging, using a tourniquet, and internal bleeding
- A variety of medical, injury, poison, and environmental emergencies including burns, electrical injuries, dehydration, drowning, amputations, bites and stings, splinters, fainting, seizures, broken bones, dislocations, and sprains
During the in-person Pediatric CPR and First Aid Skills Session, participants have an opportunity to review the cardiac arrest algorithm and first aid skills, as well as practice CPR and using an AED. Then participants will be tested on CPR and first aid scenarios.
