In any medical field, you want to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. D.A. Academy of NC is offering CPR Certification courses to help our current students, past graduates, and practicing dental assistants to keep up-to-date with their CPR Certification and stay prepared for any situation which may arise.

The potential of cardiac arrest occurring during some dental procedures—not to mention the number of different things which can go wrong during procedures requiring anesthesia—makes CPR certification a popular addition to our programs using state-of-the-art training equipment.

D.A. Academy of NC prepares our students for all possible situations inside a dentist’s office, including cardiac emergencies. Our hands-on CPR courses last approximately 3 to 3.5 hours, helping you become certified quickly. 

In the Instructor-led format, students participate in video-based lessons and learning stations. Students work with a certified AHA, ASHI, or EMS Instructor to complete the course BLS HCP, CPR/AED, First Aid or AED practice and skills testing.  

Improve the chance for survival by learning CPR. Receive your certification card which is valid for two years.

CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. It is a life-saving technique used in emergencies when someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. This technique involves chest compressions combined with artificial ventilation to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.

AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electricity which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.

Together, CPR and AED training equip individuals with the skills necessary to provide emergency assistance in critical moments before professional medical help arrives. This combination is particularly effective in increasing the chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
