(Houston) – The Texas County Memorial Hospital education department is offering heartsaver cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes to the public.
Heartsaver CPR is an instructor-led course that teaches adult CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) use as well as how to relieve choking on an adult. The course uses the American Heart Association’s “practice while watching” technique which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback and guide the students’ learning of skills.
Participants in the Heartsaver CPR class have the option of learning CPR and AED for adult, child, infant, or all three age groups. The class will be held on Tuesday, August 12 from 12:30-4:30 PM. The cost of the class is $50, which includes the instructor, class materials and cards for certification after completion of the course.
All classes are held in the Timmons Education Room at TCMH. Class size is limited, so pre-registration is required. To register for these classes, contact Connie Brooks, education director at TCMH, via phone at 417-967-1340 or 1-866-967-3311, ext. 4225 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
