Oregon boasts a low rate of cardiovascular deaths, a low prevalence of low birthweight, and a higher than average rate of physical activity.

Drug deaths have fallen in the past year, from 13.1 to 12.5 deaths per 100,000 people. Lack of health insurance decreased from 14.8% of the population to 12.2%, and diabetes decreased from almost 10% to 9%. Disparity in health status by education level increased, however, from 27.2% to 31.6%. The trends in cardiovascular health have generally been positive, with a 43% decrease from 370 per 100,000 to 212 deaths per 100,000 since 1990.
In terms of senior health, Oregon enjoys high SNAP enrollment and a low prevalence of fall related injuries, but faces challenges in a high prevalence of chronic drinking, poor mental health and low flu vaccination coverage. Home health has increased from 79.8 to 88.9 home health care workers per 1000 senior citizens. Hip fractures have decreased from 6.9 to 5.7 hospitalizations for every 1000 Medicare beneficiaries. Unfortunately, poor mental health days increased from 2.4 to 2.6 days in previous 30 over the last year, community support decreased from $574 to $495 for every adult aged over 65 living in poverty, and food insecurity has increased from 14.8% to 16.2% for adults aged 60 and older.
CPR certification is a sort of insurance policy, in that it is better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it. Oregon’s health challenges demand many professionals and non-professionals alike who are trained in CPR. Whether you are using certification as a job qualification or training just in case you might need it to save the life of a friend or family member, CPR certification is a good thing to keep in your pocket.
