The course for which you are enrolled may include physical
strain, the possibility of cross-infection, and emotional stress.
If your physician has recommended that you avoid strenuous
activity or limit your activity in any way, you need to realize
that CPR is hard work. This is true both in practicing on the
manikin and doing CPR for a cardiac arrest victim.
If you have a medical or cardiac history that may be
aggravated by the performance of CPR, you should consult
your physician and ask for advice as to whether you should
participate in a CPR course.
If you have reservations about being able to perform CPR on
a cardiac arrest victim, you should consider this before
beginning the course.
If you have recently had any type of infectious disease,
including upper respiratory infection or open sores on your
mouth or hands, it may be better to defer manikin practice
until you are well. Each student will receive a hard shell mask to use and take home as a real life saving device. We appreciate your understanding these issues and using good judgement.
