The American Heart Association’s Heartsaver CPR/AED and first aid classes for people interested in learning how to save a life are being offered by Cuyuna Regional Medical Center on Wednesdays and Thursdays in April from 4-8 p.m. at its Crosby campus.

In the courses designed for anyone with little or no medical training, participants learn how to provide first aid and CPR and use an automated external defibrillator in a safe, timely and effective manner.

The fee is $50 for each course or $80 for both CPR and first aid. To register, send a message to jodi.

Heart disease continues to be one of the greatest health threats to Americans and is still the leading cause of death worldwide, according to the AHA’s Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics – 2021 Update.

The AHA said that almost 70% of cardiac arrests occur at home and only 45% of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from bystanders. CRMC is an AHA Training Center aiding in its mission to save lives and envision a world where no one dies from cardiac arrest.

For those unable to attend one of the scheduled classes, CRMC also offers other formats for both individuals or groups to become certified in numerous AHA and Emergency Medical Services classes.

Contact CRMC’s education department at 218-546-4367 for details.
