This New American Red Cros CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer Participant's Manual and course reflect changes based on the 2005 Consensus on Science for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and the Guidelines 2005 for First Aid. Changes to this program and manual include simplifications to many of the CPR skill sequences, which helps improve retention. There have also been changes to help improve the quality of CPR. The integration of CPR skills into the operation of AEDs had changed to help improve survival from sudden cardiac arrest. Professional rescuers are now trained to use AEDs on adults and children. Information has been updated and added to this program to help professional rescuers administer epinephrine, aspirin and fixed-flow-rate oxygen. The skills learned in this course include adult, child and infant rescue breathing, conscious and unconscious choking, CPR, two-rescuer CPR and adult and child AED. Additional training can be added to this course including bloodborne pathogens training and emergency oxygen administration. While the skills and knowledge that professional rescuers use are increasing, this training will help you meet your most important responsibility as a professional rescuer- the responsibility to save lives.Changes to this program and manual include simplifications to many of the CPR skill sequences, which helps improve retention.
