Each year approximately 325,000 people die from sudden cardiac arrest. Almost 90% of all victims, if given immediate CPR, can nearly double their chance of survival. It takes approximately six minutes for first responders and EMS to arrive once they have been dispatched. These six minutes are vital to the survival of the person experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
As a citizen, you are at the front line for recognition and immediate assistance for SCA. Each month, Coastal Carolina Community College, holds a community CPR class to teach all citizens the proper way to recognize and assist cardiac arrest victims.
The next course is scheduled for May 6th, 2017 or May 27th, 2017 in Math and Science Building MS 120. All students must pre-register for the course in the Kenneth B. Hurst Continuing Education building. Sign up early as this class normally fills quickly. Course tuition is $70.00 with a $1 dollar insurance fee. Students will need to purchase the Basic Life Support Provider Manual at the bookstore (approx. $17) prior to the course.
