American Heart Association Review


Did you know that the first week in June is National CPR and AED Awareness Week? I recently found out when I was given the chance to be part of the American Heart Association blog tour. Mom Central has joined with the American Heart Association to raise awareness for all to get trained in this life-saving skill. It is critically important for parents to get trained in CPR so we can protect our families. By learning CPR we all make a small commitment that could save the life of someone we love.

I've found that the American Heart Association offers several options for learning CPR. In addition to traditional classroom courses, they offer a self-directed course, CPR Anytime. In just 22 minutes, you can learn CPR. The kit comes with an inflatable, reusable mannequin and instructional DVD. You can choose from an infant kit (for children under one year old) or child/adult kit. If you had prior CPR training but your skills have gotten rusty, now is your chance to brush up. The more you practice, the more automatic the skill will become. By starting a CPR program now, Moms get one step ahead of the game. When faced with an emergency, you will feel confident and know exactly what to do.

I was given the opportunity to review this kit and it is really great. I have CPR training and it was a wonderful refresher course. I think that one of the most important things that you can do it to be trained in CPR. Please head to the American Heart Association website and sign-up for a CPR course and training.
