Cards

Here is a list of official American Heart Association (AHA) CPR certification cards and their functions:


Heartsaver CPR/AED Sample Card:

This card is called the "BLS for Health Care Provider" Card. This card is mostly used in the health care related fields such as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), Doctors, and students who are interested in pursuing a career in the fields. In order to complete this course and get the certification a student must successfully passed the practical portion and take a 25 question proctored written exam where the student must pass with at least an 84% passing grade. This card certifies the student in CPR for adults, children, and infants and grants the student the authority under NYS Law to operate an AED (automated external defibrillator) on Adults and Children. (recommended for: Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), Doctors, and students who are interested in pursuing a career in the health fields)


First Aid Sample Card:

This card certifies that the student has the skill set necessary to help burned victims, victims who are chocking, how to properly handle a victim that got electrocuted or suffered server trauma (i.e. car accident, a fall, or a work related accident). This course also teaches you how to stop bleeding, handle victims with broken bones, bee stings, injury of the eyes or ears, chemical burns, electrical burns, appropriate handling of victims suffering from seizers, diabetes, and victims suffering from a stroke among a host of other very important safety measures in an emergency. (this certification is recommended for: Day Care Providers, Baby Sitters, Life Guards, Coaches, Personal Trainers, Police Officers, Security Guards, Construction workers, and Managers, working professionals, hazard places etc.)


CPR Sample Card:

This card is good for the lay person (ie mom/dad) that would like to learn the appropriate steps to perform CPR on an Adult, Child (from 1 to eight years old) or infant (from birth to one year of age) and how to assist an infant or child who is chocking. We teach this class either in our office or at the comfort of the student's home or work place. (recommended for everyone).


ACLS Provider Sample Card:

This card certifies that you have the skill set to enter the emergency room and as a team player in the Advance Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) system and provide the correct Algorithms for a pulseless arrest victim. This course will teach you how to read an EKG and identify the different types of heart attacks a victim can go through as well as to identify the appropriate drugs that should be administered for certain cardiac arrest. The student will learn what are the names of the drugs used and their functions, read and interpret the EKG monitor, and critical thinking skills necessary to save a victim's life. This is probably one of the most demanding and toughest course of all CPR certifications. There are several prerequisites in order to take this course such as having your current BLS for heath care provider certification and activate in the medical field. (Mandated by NYS and Federal Law for Doctors, Surgeons, Registered Nurses, EMTs, etc)


Pediatric First Aid Card

In 2009 new laws were enacted in the New York State and other states across the US targeting the child care industry. These include child care providers, baby sitters, pre schools, camps, day care centers, children hospitals, and others responsible for children have to be First Aid certified. Because these candidates had to specialize in children and infants the AHA has developed a program specific to this group- Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid- This is the completion card that is recognized.
