Smoky Mountain Wellness
A healthy community is a responsibility we each share. Responding to the needs of one another is a rich heritage found in the veins of this community. It is shown repeatedly in communities that have a health minded population there are also an increased number of citizens that are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
CPR Crash Course.This program gives a brief overview of CPR and what to do in case of emergency. Though not meant to substitute learning the lifesaving skills of CPR, participants receive information to promote response to emergencies they may encounter and identified actions that each of us should be confident in initiating.
All were encouraged to learn CPR, review CPR skills frequently and to initiate emergency response (911) immediately. Prevention of emergencies in children, identifying choking and use of an automatic defibrillator are some of the topics reviewed. Each participant gets the opportunity to work with mannequins used for CPR practice, and the opportunity to apply and use an automatic electronic defibrillator simulator.
