Basic Life Support Certification in Atlanta, Georgia

Printable CPR/Choking Summary 

Did you know that in the United States, an estimated 500,000 children and adults experience a cardiac arrest with a survival rate of less than 15%? According to the American Heart Association, this statistic confirms cardiac arrest as one of the most prevalent public health issues in this country. On a global scale, cardiac arrest claims more lives than breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, influenza, pneumonia, car accidents, HIV, firearms, and house fires combined. 

Although more preventable and less fatal than a cardiac arrest, it is also quite common for people to experience choking, especially babies and young children. Blocked airways cause choking or airway obstruction, mostly due to food getting stuck in one’s throat. Of course, the risk of a child choking on food is much higher than an adult because it usually happens before they have a full set of teeth or as the muscles that help with swallowing are not yet formed fully. 

These are just a few examples of emergency situations in which the need for basic life support certification comes in. Basic Life Support (BLS) is defined as the type of care provided by first responders, healthcare providers and other medical personnel to those who are experiencing cardiac arrest, an obstructed airway or respiratory distress.
