CarePlus CPR

Adult, Child, and Infant CPR


Community-focused CPR training

MEDIC FIRST AID CarePlus CPR is a community-focused, comprehensive training program in adult, child, and infant emergency resuscitation for the lay rescuer. CarePlus CPR will teach students how to perform resuscitation for patients of all ages who are victims of sudden cardiac arrest as well as those who have stopped breathing, or are unresponsive or choking.

CarePlus CPR is the perfect complement to training in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) and can be combined with first aid training to help meet OSHA requirements for first aid training in the workplace.
