The Power to Save A Life Is in Your Hands! @SeniorsFitness

The Power to Save A Life Is in Your Hands! Personal Health Service Review: American Red Cross #CPR Training By Robelyn A. Garcia, PhD @RGPhD

SeniorCitizenCPR

Figure 1: Hands-Only CPR from www.SeniorUniversity.online

I. Experiential Summary: American Red Cross Citizen CPR (Hands-Only) Training.
Lifesaving health service provided by Senior University (SeniorUniversity.us).
A.  American Red Cross Hands-Only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
B.  Easy to Learn
C.  No Mouth to Mouth Contact
D.  Appropriate for All Ages to Perform
E.  Created as a Safe Training Alternative to Adult & Pediatric CPR Certification

II. Review
A.  If you see a teen, adult or senior citizen suddenly collapse, hands-only CPR is the
preferred form of CPR. This will increase the likelihood of saving the life of a person
experiencing a breathing or cardiac emergency that occurs outside of a medical or
healthcare facility. Before giving Citizen CPR take the following three “C” steps:
1. CHECK – Check to make sure the scene is safe, tap the person on the shoulder
and ask if they are okay, then look for signs of normal rhythmic breathing.
2. CALL – If the victim does not respond when asked if they are okay or if they
are not breathing, call 911. You may also ask a bystander to call 911.
3. CARE – If the person is unresponsive, begin hands-only CPR compressions.

III. Consumer Advice
A.  It is of utmost importance to check and confirm your American Red Cross Instructor
certifications. In the digital age of e-health and m-health this can be done very easily
at www.RedCross.org/confirm or by calling 1-800- RED-CROS.
B.  Senior University American Red Cross Instructor IDs include but are not limited to:
0XX0V5, GVV7LO, 0ZB2UD, 0Z25FM; GMDR0O.

IV. Results of Senior University Personal Health Training in Citizen CPR
A. Become American Red Cross Trained in Hands Only Citizen CPR in 3 easy steps:
1. Watch The American Red Cross CHECK CALL CARE VIDEO
2. Watch The American Red Cross Hands-Only Citizen CPR VIDEO
3. Receive your Citizen CPR Certificate

CitizenCPR.2018

V. Call to Action
An important aspect of health promotion is taking reasonable safety precautions;
prudent safety measures must include preparing all household members to deal with medical emergencies in one’s home or community (Barrett, 2013; Senior University, 2018). I highly recommend that adults learn Citizen CPR. Further, if you work in a healthcare, academic, or athletic setting I would also recommend becoming certified in Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED.
