both the American Heart Association
and the American Red Cross
have various levels of CPR.
Basically, there is the shorter courses with skinny booklet type magazines up to longer courses with 1/2" thick 8.5 x 11" books.
Having instructed much of the older, and now newer ciriculums i favor the shorter courses for employee groups.
Let's face it, there is a difference in attention span/retention bettween those who are required
to attend vs. those with a genuine interest....and if a larger group can grasp key elements, the opportuntiy to 'buy some time' for your local ambulance service becomes all the more available.
Should some individuals wish to advance, make it available, the costs are really minimal.
Our local high school coaches have just purchased thier own de-fib....i would'nt have even dreamed this 10 yrs ago !
I would suggest that you meet with your local EMS and discuss this, they may even wish to add a basic preplan for critical incidents.
I'd venture they'd be delighted to know someone could be 'buying the patient time' responding to your facility.
