Platinum Safety’s Cardiac First Response – Advanced Level Providers Course is designed to provide the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – CPR, use an Automated External Defibrillator – AED, deliver oxygen and use advanced airways and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
Advanced Cardiac First Responder plays a vital role in keeping a person alive until they can receive expert clinical care. The course takes approximately 6 hours to complete.
Cardiac First Responders at Advanced level are most likely to have a duty to respond. The advanced course builds on the basic life support skills at CFR Community level and includes using an oropharyngeal airway (OPA), a supraglottic airway (SGA), and a bag-valve-mask (BVM), checking the patient’s pulse, giving oxygen, suction, and post-resuscitation care. If you are concerned about maintaining all the required CFR Advanced level skills, we recommend that you consider whether CFR Community level would be more appropriate for you
