Re-Certing In CPR


More pictures below article

Though many of them have actually performed it, firefighters and police officers spent part of Saturday morning, Jan. 10, re-learning CPR.

 CPR, or cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, involves a repeating series of rescue breathing and chest compressions designed to keep a person’s lungs and heart working when such activity has stopped.

In numerous cases, CPR might well be the final attempt to save a life.

Police officers from Pine Mountain along with firefighters from Hamilton, Hopewell, and Pine Mountain gathered for a CPR class last Saturday morning.

As part of the program, the emergency responders practiced how to open an airway by using the head-tilt, chin-lift or jaw thrust methods. They learned to watch the chest to make sure air from rescue breathing actually enters the lungs and not the stomach.

Participants learned how to properly compress the heart muscle along with how deep and how often to compress the chest for adults, children, infants, and neo-natal newborns.

The program was conducted under the direction of Harris County EMS.
