Frequently Asked Questions

What is CPR?

CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation which is a two-step process of delivering chest compressions and rescue breaths to a victim considered to be in cardiac arrest. When cardiac arrest occurs, the heart stops pumping blood and the victim in Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) needs CPR and delivery of a shock to the heart, called Defibrillation. CPR can support a small amount of blood flow to the heart and brain to ‘buy time’ until normal heart function is restored.

What is an AED and why would I want to learn about it?

AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator which is an easy-to-use portable machine that automatically delivers a shock to a patient who is not breathing and has no heartbeat. In the hands of knowledgeable responders, AED units dramatically increase the survival rate of these patients because early intervention is of paramount importance. Many businesses, governmental agencies, recreational facilities and public places are making AED's readily available for properly trained personnel.

I'm too busy to attend a full day course. Is there an alternative?

Course hours vary depending on how it is conducted. For example, it might be as short as three to four hours for both Primary and Secondary Care courses, if your course incorporates independent study. If the Primary and Secondary Care courses do not incorporate independent study, they could take from five to eight hours since each course is performance-based. We are proud to be the most flexible and convenient CPR first aid training school in Thailand. We appreciate that busy people and parents cannot always find the free time for a full day class. We regularly offer busy students a series of half day classes that will eventually lead to the certification once all the course requirements have been met.
