Frequently Asked Questions

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Basically, it works out like this –

  •   Cardio = heart
    •    Pulmonary = lungs
    •    Resuscitate = revive

CPR literally means reviving a person’s heart and lungs. It’s your heart’s job to keep pumping oxygen-rich blood out from your lungs and into the rest of your body. It’s your lungs job to take in oxygen, which is used as a means to fuel the rest of your body.

Some of the things that can trip either of the organs up in their duties of moving oxygen through your body include choking, suffocation, or a heart attack. If either one stops working, you have a problem, and that’s where CPR can come in.

The goal of cardiopulmonary resuscitation is to both simulate the breathing of a person’s lungs and the pumping of their heart. It’s made up of 2 main parts: rescue breathing and chest compressions. Rescue breathing involves exhaling air from your lungs into the other person’s so their body can absorb all the oxygen. Chest compressions involve manually pressing down on the person’s chest to compress the heart and get the blood flowing again.

Columbia Safety CPR provides training courses that, upon successful completion, provide you with your American Heart Association or American Red Cross CPR certification.

Heartsaver CPR is a general course and can be taken by anyone. BLS is a CPR class typically required for healthcare professionals. 

If you are a daycare provider, caring for a loved one, or would like to learn CPR skills then the Heartsaver CPR class is probably best for you. If you are a healthcare professional working in the hospital or ems the BLS course is typically required.

No, first aid is not included in the AHA’s BLS courses. That is a separate certification.
