Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Course Details

No matter where you are, people of all ages can suffer heart failure. From choking to cardiac arrest, the situation is life-threatening and requires swift, effective response. Knowing what to do can save a life. STAMAR EMS will teach you the skills you need. Here is an outline of the Levels of CPR available.

Level A:
One rescuer CPR, and choking maneuvers for adults. With an introduction to AED. An ideal starter course.
Level B: One rescuer CPR and choking maneuvers for adults and children . Includes an introduction to AED.
Level C: Adult/Child/Infant CPR and choking maneuvers, includes 2-rescuer CPR with an intro to AED.

Level C – HCP
Healthcare Providers

Adult/Child/Infant CPR and choking maneuvers including artificial resuscitation,  2-rescuer CPR with AED certification and bag-valve-mask. This program is designed for those with specific health care responsibilities.



    • Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) kills over 900 adults each day in the USA. That is about 335,000 of the 550,000 annual deaths from coronary heart disease.
    • The American Heart Association states that 95% of SCA victims die before reaching a hospital.
    • Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) is the most common cause of SCA. VF is a disruption in the normal electrical rhythm of the heart and can often be corrected quickly with a defibrillator.
    • An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) resets the heart’s normal electrical impulses in a VF victim by delivering an electric shock.
    • Brain death from lack of oxygen usually begins in 4 minutes and is usually complete in less than 10 minutes.
    • CardioPulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) supplies a limited amount of oxygen to the brain, delaying the death of cells.
    • Immediately providing CPR can double a person’s chance of survival, and the sooner CPR is started, the greater the chance of survival.
    • Around 75% of cardiac arrests happen in people’s homes so you will probably perform CPR on a family member or friend.
    • A typical SCA victim is a man 60-65 years old or a woman 65-70 years old, but it can happen to people of any age.
    • SCA occurs twice as often in men as in women.
    • There is yet to be a documented case of HIV being transmitted due to performing CPR.
    • The first out-of-hospital defibrillation device weighed over 100 pounds. AEDs now weigh less than 5 pounds.

    CPR saves lives and as more people become trained and AEDs become more common, more lives can be saved.
