To eliminate potential contamination from student-to-student during practical testing, modifications have been made, per American Heart Assocation guidelines, to forego the demonstration of breathing into practice dummies. Students are still required to demonstrate compressions and will now explain when/where/how breathing is to be performed. Upon successful performance/explanation, AHA cards will be issued. If you have any questions, please contact our Manager of Training & Outreach at 708-449-8604.
