CPR Training at the Union League of Philadelphia

CPR Training at Philadelphia Union LeagueRecently, we had the pleasure of conducting a CPR and AED Training at the Union League of Philadelphia. We were able to meet with their team on-location at a time that was flexible for them. According to our trainers, the Union League was a pretty nice backdrop for CPR classes and members of the class were happy we could be flexible to their schedule.

  • Basic Life Support CPR for the Healthcare Professional

CPR Training Kiosks to be Installed at Three Airports

Cleveland Hopkins International AirportCardiac arrest is a serious condition that is life-threatening, no matter where it happens. It’s important to be mindful of the fact that it can happen at any time and any place, including at the airport.

Anthem Foundation has funded CPR training kiosks at three major airports, set to crop up throughout the US before the summer ends.

How the Kiosks Work

At the kiosks, users undergo a five-minute training process for hands-only CPR:

  1. If you see someone collapses suddenly, call 911 immediately.
  2. Push quickly on the center of the collapsed person’s chest until paramedics arrive.
  3. Next, the users practice on a rubber manikin and complete a 30-second test that provides detailed feedback regarding hand placement and depth and rate of chest compressions.

On July 24, the first station made its debut at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. On August 1st, a new kiosk will be added to the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky International Airport, and Orlando International Airport will be home to a CPR station starting August 9.

In the past, Anthem has sponsored kiosks at other airports, including O’Hare International Airport in Chicago; Indianapolis International Airport; Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport; and Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
