CPR Certification Means Safety First At The Hive
More than twenty bees attended the first in a series of CPR, AED, and Basic First Aid classes to be held at Aerohive’s corporate headquarters. More classes are upcoming, with a goal of certifying people in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a lifesaving technique used to restore oxygenated blood flow to the vital organs, and rendering first aid in common medical emergencies.
During the class, the participants learned to clear airways, apply chest compressions, and give breath to life-like adult-, child-, and infant-sized mannequins. A focus on how to handle severe allergic reactions, asthma attacks, strokes, diabetes, and seizures was also included in the curriculum.
Finally, participants were trained in the use of AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators). All participants are now certified for two years!
