Bowdoin offers its employees the opportunity to take potentially life saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training conveniently right on campus several times a year. American Red Cross CPR and AED programs are designed to give you the confidence to respond in an emergency situation with skills that can save a life.
Hands-on skills training prepares participants to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults. This course will teach participants to:
- Call and work with EMS
- Perform CPR and care for breathing & cardiac emergencies
- Avoid bloodborne pathogens exposure
- Learn the role of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the Cardiac Chain of Survival
