Professional Training

Southern Platte provides a professional training program on CPR that can truly make a difference in someone’s life. In this training session you will learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of when a persons breathing or heart stops and how to react appropriately during these times of crisis.

Being Prepared When It Matters Most

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can help save a life if a person’s breathing or heart stops. Southern Platte’s professional training will teach you the steps to safely, effectively and confidently be prepared for the minutes that matter the most. However, even after training, remembering the CPR steps and administering them correctly can be a challenge.

In order to help, please follow this step-by-step guide:

  1. Call 911 or ask someone else to.
  2. Lay the person on their back and open their airway.
  3. Check for breathing. If they are not breathing, start CPR.
  4. Perform 30 chest compressions
    • Hand position: Two hands centered on the chest
    • Body position: Shoulders directly over hands; elbows locked
    • Depth: At least 2 inches
    • Rate: 100 to 120 per minute
    • Allow chest to return to normal position after each compression
  5. Perform two rescue breaths.
    • Open the airway to a past-neutral position using the head-tilt/chin-lift technique
    • Ensure each breath lasts about 1 second and makes the chest rise; allow air to exit before giving the next breath
  6. Repeat until an ambulance or automated external defibrillator (AED) arrives.
