CPR Certification For Adults

Getting certified for adult CPR is simple at SafeNowCPR. We teach all techniques and skills necessary for you to both perform the skill of CPR but also understand when it is and is not needed. Adult CPR differs from child and infant CPR in both the skill AND the reason for performing.

Children have healthy hearts that rarely experience cardiac arrest whereas cardiac arrest in adults is much more common. With adults, you are more likely to perform CPR as a result of cardiac arrest rather than choking or other forms of asphyxiation like drowning. All of which are more commonly occurring in children however adults also experience these situations. With SafeNowCPR adult CPR certification training you will learn precisely when and how to perform CPR on adults.

If you’re wondering what age group classifies a person as an adult, the American Heart Association considers any individual beyond puberty as an adult. CPR rules do not follow legal adult regulations as these skill variations are largely based on the victims size and body development.
