ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Regular CPR training is paramount for all medical professionals, including doctors, GPs, nurses, dentists, and healthcare practitioners.

Although most medical professionals are familiar with resuscitation protocols, many do not operate in acute care or clinical settings.

Skills can fade without regular exposure to emergencies, compromising the ability to respond effectively when needed.

ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) classes offer a vital opportunity to refresh and practice CPR techniques, ensuring proficiency remains sharp.

Medical professionals can adeptly intervene in critical situations by maintaining up-to-date knowledge of CPR protocols and continually refining their skills through consistent training.
