Heartworks CPR Offers Life-Saving Training for Businesses, Organizations and Families

Glenview, IL, November 7, 2006 - Would you know what to do if your child suddenly started choking on a hot dog, small toy or other object?  What if your dog was choking?  Do you know the warning signs of a heart attack?  What about a stroke?  Does butter really work on burns?  These are just some of the questions Glenview-based Heartworks CPR will answer in one of their many area classes and seminars.

Founded by Vicki Dank and Cindy Zaban, Heartworks CPR provides American Heart Association and Medic First Aid International training at their Glenview office or at your home, school or place of business.  Heartworks CPR also provides CPR Certification for those professions requiring the accreditation, including health care providers, trainers, flight attendants, education professionals and child care workers.

"At Heartworks CPR, we focus on a coaching approach to our classes," said Dank.  "We have a relaxed atmosphere with individual attention to understanding the concepts and lifesaving capabilities of each student."

Heartworks CPR conducts classes on basic life support, first aid, CPR, CPR Certification, Defibrillator Use, strokes, allergic reactions, insect bites, pet first aid and pet CPR.

Using state-of-the-art visuals, including choking manikins, a simulated beating heart, pet manikins and large-screen presentations, anyone from the age of eight on up can learn emergency first aid.  Those twelve and older can participate in a CPR class.  Class sizes range from one-on-one to groups as large as 50.  Non-certification classes start at just $20.

Heartworks CPR is also an authorized seller of Defibtech defibrillators.

"We are dedicated to making sure everyone of our students, no matter how much medical training they may have, learns something new in our sessions - something that could save a life," added Zaban.
