People older than 14 are invited to learn how to save a life at Cottage Health’s “HeartSaver” CPR class for adults from noon to 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22.
The training will be held in the front conference room of Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital, 2050 Viborg Road in Solvang.
The class covers CPR as well as FBAO (Foreign Body Airway Obstruction) plus instruction of the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) on anyone over the age of 8 years old. Attendees will also learn the links in the AHA “Chain of Survival,” including the importance of dialing 9-1-1.
This class is appropriate for non-professional caregivers and those who want to learn these skills. Participants will receive a course completion card upon successfully finishing the class.
“Anyone who wants to learn the special techniques necessary to help save a heart can help save a life,” said SYVCH Vice President Wende Cappetta.
