If you witnessed a life-threatening emergency, would you know how to help someone in need of CPR?
Knowing how to perform CPR could help you save someone’s life, which is why Tidelands Health, in partnership with the YMCA of Coastal Carolina, offers Heartsaver CPR, a four-hour CPR course for everyday people. Participants learn basic pediatric and adult CPR, how to respond to choking, basic first aid and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
“We need as many people as possible who know what to do if someone needs CPR,” says Layne Woodward, a registered nurse clinical care manager at Tidelands Health community health resources and Heartsaver CPR instructor. “Anyone can learn how to do this.
“The more people who can perform CPR, the better the outcomes for people who suffer cardiac arrest,” Woodward adds.
