When my daughter and her classmates became my instructors, I learned how to do CPR and received free lessons in humility.
Monday, November 6th, 2017, I received a text message from my daughter reminding me of the CPR training today at her high school. She is part of a program for First Responders which trains students in Opportunities in Emergency Care.
While I agreed to become CPR certified, she along with her classmates were getting their certification for becoming CPR instructors.
I actually forgot about the training but was glad I had no other plans to cancel. The training was very informative.
We learned how to do chest compressions on an adult, child, and infant in case of a cardiac arrest. We got to practice a few times, including how to use an AED, a medical device used to deliver shocks between cycles of chest compressions. It was an informative and busy night.
