Greetings everyone:

A CPR glass will be offered here on Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 8-4 pm in CISX-338.  

This 8-hour course, offered through Stanford EH&S, will cover basic 
first aid and simple emergency procedures that you could use to save 
someone’s life. This course will also cover Cardio-Pulmonary 
Resuscitation (CPR) and use of the Automated External Defibrillator 
(AED) – which are awfully handy skills to know, when someone’s heart stops.

If you (like many of us)were CPR-certified ages ago, it’s well worth doing 
again because the recommended best-know-practices 
have changed a LOT. Also, we now have two AED systems in this building, 
so it’s handy to know how to use one (or have someone on-hand who does!) 
One statistic quoted by EMT professionals is that use of CPR alone may 
have a survival rate of 2% of less, whereas the combination of CPR and 
AED has a survival rate of 80% or greater.

Completion of this course gives you a certification 
that is valid for two years. Anyone may register for this course. The 
cost for the class is $65. If you are a Stanford person, your department 
may cover the cost of this class (and STAP funds certainly will). Labmembers:  class 
fees may also be transferred to your SNF account, upon request.

If you are interested in registering for the class, please get in touch 
with me.

Thanks for your attention!
