HeartSmart CPR LLC classes are fun and relaxed. American Heart Association BLS, ACLS and PALS cards are issued the same day! American Red Cross also available. Instructor owned and operated by a RN/Paramedic, giving you someone with experience in hospital nursing as well as pre hospital medicine. We offer a full training facility at our offices in Ellenton or Pinellas Park, where you will get hands on practice with simulation equipment. We specialize in private and combination classes at our office, or yours, with scenarios designed to meet your needs. Or do a blended class with online video and test, then a in person skills check off. Group discounts available.
We use Prestan manikins that light up red if you need to increase your speed and depth, then turn green when you hit a rate of 100 compressions a minute. You will hear audible “clicks” to show proper depth of compressions. This allows you to monitor your own technique and make adjustments. They also provide proper airway positioning to allow ventilations to make the chest rise.
This mannequin allows for practice using a BVM, bag valve mask, NPA/OPA insertion, LMA, and ETT intubations. For a more difficult scenario, there is an inflatable stomach to simulate vomiting. You will see the anatomy of the airway to get a visual of what is actually happening during ventilations, and additional airway models to view placements.
