About CPR/AED Certification
This class is ideal for anyone who wants to know how to perform CPR if the need arises or for someone who needs a certification as part of a job requirement. The course covers CPR for adults, children and infants as well as Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use. All Franciscan Health Fitness Centers staff members are CPR/AED certified.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions with artificial breathing in an effort to manually revive an unresponsive person. Ultimately, the goal is to preserve intact brain function until additional measures can be taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) can be found in many public places, and are available for home use. These machines have pads or paddles to place on the chest during a life-threatening emergency. They use computers to automatically check the heart rhythm and give a sudden shock if, and only if, that shock is needed to get the heart back into the right rhythm.

Large & great schedule open til 11pm. Unfortunately the pool closes @9 or 9:30 & usually it’s the 20yd pool only, so I have to arrive even earlier if I want to swim in the 25 yd pool or to get laps in even for the 20 yd pool. I look forward to trying out the 25yd salt water pool. M...
