Why CPR?

CPR is a Critical Skill to Learn!


In nearly every work, social, or family situation, there is always the slim possibility that someone could have a heart attack. Other times people experience heart stoppages from electrical shocks, accidents, and overdoses. However slim the chance, there is the possibility that the person you save by knowing CPR maybe someone you love dearly.

That being said, there are a lot of responsible companies that care enough to send their employees through CPR classes, and you should take advantage if you can.

CPR Prolongs Life Until Help Arrives

In most cases, just administering CPR won’t actually restart someone’s heart. What it does is supply the needed oxygenated blood to the heart, brain, and rest of the body until paramedics arrive. As long as the body’s tissues are kept alive when the EMTs jump start your heart, you’ll have a greater chance to survive.

In the US alone there are over 383,000 cases of cardiac arrest that take place outside of a hospital each year. The importance of having the proper training can’t be stressed enough since every second counts and could mean the difference between life or death.

Knowing exactly what to do and taking action can only come from the confidence of knowing you’ve been well trained by the best. Training providers like Premium CPR of Houston offer on-site classes for businesses and other groups that wish to educate themselves in the technique of CPR.

What You Should Know Before You Start CPR Training

A quick stat is that nearly 90% of all people that suffer a heart attack die before they reach the hospital. And, to save a person that’s had a heart attack, CPR should be started within the first 2 minutes to avoid brain damage. Fast action by someone that’s been professionally trained is the best option to save a life.

CPR Class Information


When you take an onsite CPR class, like those offered by Premium CPR of Houston, you’ll first be shown by an expert how the procedure is done using a CPR manikin. Then, students will have the opportunity for plenty of hands-on practicing on their own manikin. You’ll need to practice enough so that you have the confidence to step right in when there’s an emergency without hesitation.

The length of a class varies but most will only last an hour and a half to two hours, depending on how many students there are. Premium CPR offers various types of CPR training, such as Adult CPR, Pediatric CPR, and BLS.

Child CPR needs to have special attention paid to how delicate their chests are plus the importance of clearing their throats of foreign objects. Children rarely have heart attacks but do frequently choke on small items found around the home. In addition to that, children drown in pools and ponds more often as well.

Anyone that coaches, teaches, cares for, or has children should take the child CPR class since the child you save, may be your own.

There are also classes offered for advanced personnel such as firefighters, EMTs, police officers, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. These people are far more likely to encounter those needing help and also a wider range of different situations with different solutions.

If you have an interest in becoming CPR certified, you can call Premium CPR in Houston Texas to discuss your options by phone. We come right to your business, and work with you and your employees, right on site., or you can come to our training center, whichever is more convenient for you.

Premium CPR Update 03/16/2022

Since the outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19 in the Spring of 2020 we have continued to evaluate and adjust our policies and procedures as necessary, to meet the guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, and the American Health and Safety Institute, in addition to the latest CDC and WHO updates.

At Premium CPR our top priority is the health and safety of our students and staff, and their families. To that end here are the latest procedures for our classes:

1. Proper Face Masks (N-95 or Surgical masks) are currently not required, but still RECOMMENDED, for all Premium CPR Classes. They should be worn properly covering both mouth and nose.

2. If you have been exposed to Covid, or have had a positive Covid test, then obviously you should not be coming to class. Please contact us to reschedule.

3. If you were exposed to Covid, or tested positive for covid and have since recovered, been through the proper quarantine period, and now test negative, then it is REQUIRED that you wear a proper facemask, i.e. an N95 or a surgical mask, and maintain social distancing at all times.

4. Anyone who is sick, has a fever, or feels sick should not attend class. Please contact us to reschedule.

5. We reserve the right to cancel a class for anyone who appears sick or not feeling well.

6. NO children, family, or friends! Only paid students are allowed in the classroom and facility at any time. Anyone not paying for the class needs to remain outside the building at all times.

7. All equipment will be sanitized before, during, and after each class.

8. We will do our very best to ensure that there will be no sharing of equipment, each student will have their own manikin, AED, etc. An exception to this is in the BLS class students have the option to work together.

9. Cleaning wipes and Hand Sanitizer will be available during class.

10. Social Distancing – we do our best to maintain social distancing in our classes.

We will do our utmost to make sure that our training classes are as safe as possible for our students and staff members. Thank you for your cooperation.
