    • Thanks for the comment, Waldmann, I hope everyone can and will use these resources for CPR. I’m glad to hear that you are going to get recertified. Let’s share this post and get the word out.

  1. Hi Fred,
    CPR is such a vital skill to have. I’m a school teacher so I receive mandatory training every year. I think that CPR should be a compulsory course for school students. Because teachers are already trained, it wouldn’t take much to set up eithwr
    Thanks for the informative post!

    • Thank you for the comment, Marketa, I’m with you on that I think that it should be required for school students before they could graduate. My son said that it was for him and I hope it’s the same for all students.

  2. Fantastic article! I know for a fact that cpr and medical preparedness is crucial to many situations that may come up.

    I’ve been meaning to take classes or get certified, but I never knew where to look.
    You provided some great links that have helped me a ton. Do you recommend a good book on this topic as well? Thanks!

    • Thank you for the comment, Jacob, everyone knowing these CPR techniques would be a great thing and a lot of comfort for all don’t you think? I think it should be mandatory that when we turn 18 to have the knowledge. I’m glad that you found this post helpful.

  3. Most of us if not all understand the importance of CPR but to learn and get certified is another story altogether. For some reason, not many will want to take the course and get certified. More awareness is needed to promote this and I am sure your article will help.

    • Thanks for the comment, Sharon, yes a lot of people know about CPR but don’t know how to do it in the proper way. I think when we are young it should be mandatory to have training. That means more awareness has to be brought out about it.

    • Thanks for the comment, Lanu, very valuable information which needs to be spread worldwide but the only way this can be done is by everybody helping. Who knows maybe someday we may have to save a life by what we’ve learned here.

  4. Fred, I can’t believ I came across your article today, of all days. Because today was the first day of my 3-day first aid course, where, guess what, we were trained to perform CPR. I would say, as much as you may love to want save people’s lives, don’t go for this type of course if you are squeamish or panic easily. I’m told I am a bit of a freak, as I love all things gory.. well, most of them. But yes, I likeminded to think I shall be fine being in action, even if I think I shall like to be supervised the first few times. I think contributing, even in small part, to making somebody better is the best reward you can get from this life. Thank you ever so much for bringing this vital technique to the forefront for us 🙂

    • Thank you, Giulia, for the comment. I am glad that I got to bring it to you at the right time. I took the course back when I went back to school in my 30s and got certified. I need to do it again and get recertified but I had no problem with it. I always like to help.

  5. Hi Fred, I’m so glad I came across your article. It reminded me of how important it is to know this health training.

    I’ve already been certified but that was many years ago, so I will definitely go ahead and recertify as this is something I should continue to update myself on as I never know when I might need to provide this service.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you, Stephanie, for the comment. I glad that I helped remind you of how important it is to know this. Sounds like me being certified years ago and needing to update that. Hope this post helps everybody see the need.

    • Thanks for the comment, Jessmond, this is very important it might save your life someday. Being prepared is also very important because we never know when an emergency might arise.

  6. Thanks for the info! CPR is such an important skill and I really should re-learn how to do it! Its so hard to motivate yourself sometimes because we all think itll never happen to us. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

    • Thanks for the comment, Danielle much appreciated this is an important skill we should all know and should be made mandatory. This post should be shared with everyone so they can be made aware.

  7. Hello Fred,

    This is such an important topic. It´s great that you have written a post about it. Like you say it is extremely important to know how to react in an emergency situation. I used to work as a flight attendant and we had to do the CPR-course once a year. It is some years ago since I quit the job and I want to refresh my knowledge again. The video you shared here in this post is great because it is always easier to understand how to do when you see it.

    • Thanks, Pernilla for the comment. This is a topic that many people just don’t ever think of and don’t realize how handy it would be to know. These techniques are usually needed in emergencies but just think how good it would feel if you kept someone from dying.

  8. Hi Fred!

    Thank you for writing this information post on CPR and being prepared. I couldn’t agree more that we all need to be prepared. I will look into get CPR certified. If I can help, I would want to help.

    Thanks again!

    • Thanks for the comment, Katie, I am glad to hear that you are going to get certified this is a great thing to know. We all need to help in health situations.
