MAURY REGIONAL HOSPITAL OFFERS CPR PROGRAM

COLUMBIA, Tenn.—Maury Regional Hospital (MRH) will present two cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) programs on Saturday, October 20 in the hospital’s Auxiliary Conference Room. The first class will be held from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.; and the second class from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Jackie Miles, clinical educator at MRH, will lead the program.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency procedure for a person whose heart has stopped or who no longer is breathing. According to the American Heart Association, about 75 to 80 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen at home; so being trained to perform CPR can mean the difference between life and death for a loved one. Statistics show that CPR can double a victim's chance of survival by maintaining vital blood flow to the heart and brain until more advanced care can be given.

While this is not a certification course, participants will learn the basics in adult, child and infant CPR, and how to operate an automated external defibrillator (AED) machine. The cost is $10 per person and class size is limited to 40 participants. To register, call MRH at 381.1111, extension 2334.
