Welcome to Medhealthfit - Best CPR Program – PERIOD!

Our goal is the change the way employers and the general public view and practice CPR training. Over the past few years the industry has moved from on-site 3-4 hour classes, to online training, and a simple “hands-only” session to complete the certification process.

Medhealthfit thinks there is a better, more interesting way to approach CPR education. We think that there are a few issues that should define this medical procedure when people sign up for a voluntary (or required) class.

#1 – The effectiveness of CPR is dependent upon your overall skills, and your willingness to “take charge” of the situation when you arrive on the scene. This means staying calm, directing others, and remembering information relating to the incident.

#2 – We look at CPR as part of a physiologic model as opposed to a purely safety model. We define aspects of the heart, and things like the electrophysiology of AED use in a simple and compelling way. In addition to teaching intervention techniques, we discuss the aspects of prevention whenever possible to reduce illness and injuries BEFORE they happen. This includes topics like choking, heat illness, and diabetes blood sugar control.

Eric Durak presenting at national healthcare conference#3 – Most CPR classes are boring. Most students just want to take (or re-take) the class because they need to. Our method brings together many types of teaching methods, information, and FUN aspects to both make our CPR classes enjoyable, but to give you the TOOLS to remember what you need to know in the event you will ever need to use CPR and first aid training techniques.

Eric Durak is the most qualified CPR professional in the nation. He has a 30-year career in health, fitness, and safety, and teaches over 500 CPR students a year in his American Red Cross on-site programs. His credits include:

· Clinical Exercise Physiologist (specializing in diabetes, cancer, aging, athletic performance)· Studied EKG and cardiac physiology (University of Michigan / Loma Linda University Public Health Dept.)
· Medical Researcher (published in medicine, sports medicine, ergonomics, and health promotion)
· Owns national certification company (produced seven certification courses). Presented at hundreds of conferences, workshops and grand rounds programs throughout his career
· Health and Safety Specialist – University of California
· Licensed and authorized provider – American Red Cross

Eric’s unique take on CPR is two-fold. He wants students to be serious in their approach to life saving (not just learning the technique), but he uses the right teaching techniques to have fun during the classroom process.

You’ll agree that our CPR and First Aid course is “The Best CPR Course. Period!

Adult CPR and AED (Red Cross course HSSSFA-107):
Video course that details the steps necessary to assess the situation and perform CPR on adults and children. The portion on automated defibrillators (AEDs) teaches the steps for using an AED in a cardiac emergency whenever a unit is available.
