HeartSaver® CPR for teachers, personal trainers, coaches, life guards, and everyone else in the public who wants to learn basic lifesaving CPR and AED training from the American Heart Association.
The AHA HeartSaver CPR class is NOT for healthcare providers such as doctors, nurses, paramedics, dentists, etc. If you are a healthcare provider you need to take a Basic Life Support (BLS) CPR class.

This is taught in all HeartSaver CPR classes.
HeartSaver CPR classes in Nashville will teach chest compressions (as you see in the video above), rescue breathing, choking and other life saving techniques for infants, children and adults. At the end of the class you will be awarded a 2 year AHA provider card.
The American Heart Association made some major changes in 2010 to the basic CPR algorithm. All of the updated changes are taught in each CPR Nashville class. One of the major changes is that chest compressions are given 30 times and breaths are only given 2 times after 30 compressions. Also, it is important to begin compression immediately. Then you can check airway and breathing.
The course is taught with a combination of video and live instruction from a certified AHA teacher. AHA instructors are usually nurses, paramedics and others who have experience in emergency situations. Remember that HeartSaver CPR is for personal trainers, teachers and those who are not healthcare providers.
