    Summer Safety: The Top Reasons You Should Know CPR

    simonhopes

    Have you been thinking about getting your CPR certification but you have been holding yourself back? Well, now that summer is upon us, there really is no better time than right now to get your certification in first aid and CPR. A lot can go wrong during the summer season, when everyone is out and about, enjoying the natural world, going on holidays around the world, and swimming in pools and at beaches. If you were to find yourself in a situation involving someone in desperate need of help this summer, having your certification in CPR could mean the difference between life and death for the victim. Keep reading to learn about a few more of the top reasons why you should know CPR for summer.

    A Few Stats to Get Started

    A lot of things can go wrong during the summer season. Choking incidents could occur at your barbecue or pool party, accidents can happen while hiking trails and the threat of drowning is always there whenever people go swimming both at the beach and in a pool.

    According to the Centres for Disease Control (CDC), roughly 10 people end up dying from unintentional drowning every day. And of those victims, two of them will be children who are 14 years old or younger. For this reason, many people make it a point to learn CPR before or during the summer. In the event you were to see someone drowning or choking, you could potentially save their life before it is too late.

    Cardiac Arrest Can Happen at Anytime

    Cardiac arrest can occur suddenly and without warning. It is a leading cause of death and hundreds of thousands of cases of sudden cardiac arrests happen every year outside of hospital environments. Of the people who suffer cardiac arrests outside of a medical facility, 90% will end up dying.

    CPR is especially important in these cases because, when it is performed right away and when help is called right away, the odds of surviving can be doubled or even tripled. This summer, a cardiac arrest could strike someone you care about, and it could happen whether you are at home or away from home on holiday. Being prepared by knowing how to perform CPR could make you a hero and a lifesaver.

    What About First Aid?

    When you learn CPR from a certified instructor, you can also go a step further and learn first aid techniques. These can help you save lives and help people in need of immediate medical attention wherever you might be. Like CPR, first aid could make a big difference in whether or not a victim survives, and it could also reduce the severity of the damage caused by an accident or medical emergency. In fact, the combination of first aid and CPR could be just what a person needs to hold on until the ambulance arrives.

    With a certification in first aid, you can learn how to quickly assess a person’s health status, such as their heart rate and breath rate. And you will already have basic medical procedures memorised so you will not have to waste any time looking up information that will allow you to help a victim. When time is of the essence, reacting quickly and correctly is the key. By knowing exactly what to do, and how to maintain your composure throughout the whole process so that you do not end up panicking, you can help a victim avoid permanent disability, and you might even help the victim make a complete recovery and survive.

    Summertime Really Is the Season of Accidents

    Because people are more active during the summer season, when the weather allows them to get outside more, it is a season during which many different types of accidents are more likely to occur. You simply never know when you will be in a situation or in an area in which there is a person in need of immediate medical care. But, having your certification in CPR and first aid will give you the peace of mind of knowing that you will be able to step up and help at a moment’s notice.

    Here are a few other interesting facts about summertime accidents:

    • A greater number of teens are killed in car accidents during the summer than at any other time of the year. Bike riders are also out in greater numbers during the summer, increasing the odds of an accident occurring.
    • When people spend a lot of time in the hot summer sunshine, they increase their risk of sunburn and of the body overheating, and that could lead to heat stroke. Symptoms include a headache, vomiting, nausea, and confusion, and this is a serious medical condition that requires treatment right away.
    • Insects love the summer heat and they are out in full force throughout the season. Insects that bite and sting, such as ticks, mosquitoes, and bees, can do a lot of damage, causing allergic reactions and spreading disease. If you are around someone who has a serious reaction to a bite or a sting, knowing first aid can be extremely helpful.
    • Kids also love spending time at the playground during the summer, running around and playing on the swings, slides, and more. But kids don’t always take the right steps to stay safe, and accidents can and do happen in the playground.
    • Food poisoning is also more common in the summer, particularly as people bring their food outside into the heat and do not properly store it and maintain it at the right temperature to prevent bacteria from spreading.

    Get Your Certification Today!

    For all of these reasons, a certification in CPR can come in really handy throughout the summer. Plus, you can then use the skills that you acquired to help people throughout the rest of the year too. After all, medical emergencies and accidents can happen even when the weather is cold and when people are spending more time indoors as well.
