CPR, AED & Choking Training Courses

AHS has accreditation to train nationally, so training courses can be facilitated at our clients premises, as long as we have 8 or more delegates to train on-site, or delegate can join our of our scheduled public course dates, which takes place at our emergency care training centres.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure used by first aiders, medical personnel and by-standers to manually circulate blood around the body when the heart has stopped working. CPR first aid is administered when a patient is found to have no pulse or respirations. CPR is continued until either the patient has a return of a pulse, the rescuer gets too tired to continue, a medical professional takes over, or he is declared dead by a paramedic or a doctor.

Roughly 9 out of 10 people who suffer cardiac arrest outside of the hospital die. When CPR is administered immediately after sudden cardiac arrest a victim’s chances of survival are almost tripled! When we look at the research it was found that around 70% of victims suffer cardiac arrest while at home. Whether you are young or old, knowing CPR first aid can be the difference between life and death for your family, friends, or work colleagues. 

Choking is another major killer which leads to cardiac arrest due to the interruption of oxygen supply to the lungs and ultimately the brain. Choking has been called the fourth biggest cause of unintentional injury death and almost half of choking victims are over the age of 74. Food and dentures are often the culprits of choking in elderly victims. The very young are also at risk of choking as they explore the world by placing objects in their mouths. Quick intervention of choking first aid is crucial to relieve the foreign body obstruction to prevent cardiac arrest!

Absolute Health Services offers CPR certification through the well-known CPR course; BLS for Healthcare Providers, which is accredited through the American Heart Association (AHA) as well as the CPR for Professionals and CPR for Everyone courses which are accredited through the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa (RCSA). Our instructors are also all qualified paramedics with many years’ worth of experience in emergency patient treatment and we will ensure that you receive the best CPR training possible!
