CPR Portland Oregon

CPR Portland Oregon - When you need training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, here is a helpful guide to help you find the right CPR training facility in Portland. CPR is one of the best first aid techniques you can learn, and CPR certification is a requirement for many jobs in the healthcare and services industries.  Whether you need it for work or not, getting Portland CPR training can be a good idea because you never know when your first aid training might help to save a life.  

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is administered when someone's breathing or pulse stops. If both have stopped, then sudden death has occurred. While some of the causes of sudden death include poisoning, drowning, choking, suffocation, electrocution, or smoke inhalation, the most common cause is from heart attack. (OSHU.EDU)  Call 9-1-1 if you need help in a medical emergency.

The Oregon Red Cross is a great place to learn more about Portland first aid courses, including Portland CPR training and certification.  They offer the following first aid courses (from their website OregonRedCross.org):
