Cannon provides CPR training in Winfield

 

Chris Cannon, Cowley College Department Chair of Health & Human Services and Director of EMS Education, provided hands-only CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training for the Winfield Soroptimist Club Friday at Hunters Café in Winfield.

More than 20 individuals learned the basics of lifesaving CPR during the 30 minute session. 

“Strengthening the chain of survival is critical to improve survival rates in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest,” Cannon said. “This chain starts with early recognition, early CPR, and early AED (automated external defibrillator) use.”

Cowley College offers customizable lifesaving classes, including adult and/or pediatric CPR, AED and First Aid. Certification classes start at $20 per student and can be offered at your facility. Free hands-only CPR training is available to the citizens of Cowley County with a minimum class size of 12.
