Course on CPR, AED use set

TERRE HAUTE — Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center is scheduled to offer a course Tuesday on how to deal with life-threatening cardiac events.

Topics covered will be basic CPR and use of an automated external defibrillator, also called an AED.

The course is set for 8:30 a.m. to noon in Conference Room A at the hospital in Paris, Ill.

This course is open to anyone in the community.

A basic first aid course will immediately follow the CPR/AED course from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm. The first aid course is for anyone who is required to have first aid as part of their certification, employment or to meet OSHA requirements.

Registrants who attend the CPR/AED course are welcome to stay for the first aid course if they choose.

All three of these non-healthcare provider courses follow guidelines established by the American Heart Association. Upon successful completion of the courses, participants will earn certification through the American Heart Association.

The cost for the course is $20, which covers all three sessions.

Registration is required by 9 a.m. Monday. Call Rachel Massey, RN, BSN, MS, at 217-465-2606, Ext. 320.
