Tyler Coupling Holds Annual CPR/AED Training

Did you know that every year over 300,000 Americans die from heart disease and half of these victims die suddenly due to cardiac arrest?  The American Heart Association reports that victims suffering from cardiac arrest have a few short minutes before brain damage, organ damage or even death occurs.  Rescue breathing coupled with chest compressions, known as CPR, buys the victim the time that may be required to save their life.

Every year, Tyler Coupling in Marshfield, Missouri holds CPR/AED training for team members interested in becoming CPR certified or getting recertified.  As part of this training, team members participated in demonstrations on the proper way to respond during a cardiac arrest.  This year General Manager Bill Hoffman (pictured here) played the part of the heart attack victim.

If you haven’t participated in a CPR training class, consider it.  You may find yourself in a position to save someone’s life.
