Health Education Solutions Teaches Lifesaving Skills in Research Library’s New Online Heartsaver Special Section


A sudden cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival falls seven to 10 percent for every minute of delay until defibrillation if CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is not provided, underscoring the need for training in this lifesaving skill set. Health Education Solutions, the leading provider of continuing education solutions for healthcare professionals and the general public, today released a new Heartsaver® Special Section, a series of articles, vignettes and important facts about the American Heart Association’s Heartsaver® courses, including CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED), First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogens certifications.

The 10-article special section is now available in Health Education Solutions’ online research library. It is free for healthcare providers, first responders and individuals who simply want to be prepared to provide emergency care.

“CPR and AED are important skills for not only healthcare workers and first responders, but also for child care workers, fitness and recreation professionals, and even moms and dads or anyone else who interacts with people on a day-to-day basis,” said David King, president of Health Education Solutions. “Whether you're seeking to update your professional skills, or just want to be prepared for a medical emergency, Health Education Solutions’ research library and online courses make vital information easily accessible.”

The special section includes information and stories about first aid certification and other related topics. Here are some highlights:

• Eight Things NOT to Do When Performing CPR
• Heartsaver® First Aid and CPR at Home
• What Are Bloodborne Pathogens and How Do They Spread?
• First Aid at Work: Best Practices and Fundamentals

Through participation in the American Heart Association Enterprise Program, Health Education Solutions provides the cognitive portions of the Heartsaver® courses entirely online. The courses’ web-based, self-paced modules offer a flexible training option for anyone seeking to learn lifesaving skills. Following the online course, students are required to meet with an American Heart Association instructor to complete a hands-on skills practice session and test.

Heartsaver® training for CPR, first aid courses and other American Heart Association certification options include Heartsaver® First Aid Online Part 1, Heartsaver® CPR and AED Online Part 1, Heartsaver® First Aid Online with CPR & AED Part 1 and Heartsaver® Bloodborne Pathogens Online. Other courses offered through the American Heart Association Enterprise Program include Stroke and BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1.

Health Education Solutions also offers online certification and recertification for advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) and pediatric advanced life support (PALS). ACLS and PALS courses follow the American Heart Association guidelines and were developed in partnership with Union College.
