This AHA (American Heart Association) course provides techniques to apply CPR to choking adults, children and infants. The course is intended for anyone who wants to learn CPR but does not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. It teaches basic orientation and lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and choking relief for adults, children and infants that can be practiced whilst waiting for the medical professionals to arrive on the scene.  CPR skills are significantly useful to bridge the gap between sudden cardiac arrest and the arrival of advanced medical interventions.
