CPR/AED/First Aid Training

The CAFNR Staff Advisory Council wants to empower all CAFNR employees to be lifesavers, both at home and at work.

Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States and can happen to anyone at any time. The CAFNR Staff Advisory Council is working with the Shelden Clinical Simulation Center to provide Heartsaver (CPR/AED/First Aid) training opportunities for CAFNR faculty and staff. Only a few slots in the July 12 and July 15 sessions remain. Availability is limited and registration is required.

What is new this year?

  • The CPR/AED and First Aid trainings will be combined into one six-hour training session with practical skills assessment.
  • Training will be held on-site at the Sheldon Clinical Simulation Center, located at 1 Hospital Drive.
  • There is no cost to participate, but a MoCode is required to hold your sign-up. The MoCode will only be charged in the case of no call/no show.

Why should you sign up for CPR/AED training?

  1. Bystander intervention can save a life during sudden cardiac arrest incidents. Feel empowered and confident to act.
  2. Seventy percent of cardiac arrest incidents happen at home.
  3. For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, a cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival decrease between 7 percent and 10 percent.
  4. A person who suffers a cardiac arrest in public has more than twice the chance of surviving if a bystander steps in to restart the heart with an automated external defibrillator before an emergency crew arrives at the scene.

I’ve already received CPR training. Why should I do it again?

CPR guidelines have changed, and CPR best practices continue to evolve. Re-training is essential to keep your skills up-to-date.
