IMPORTANCE OF BEING CPR CERTIFIED
Each year, 300,000 people die from sudden cardiac arrest, which is about 1,000 people a day.
If defibrillation is delivered within 3 minutes, survival can be as high as 75%.
With the proper training, anyone can administer effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)and Automated External Defibrillation (AED) treatment, in order to save a person's life.
The vast majority of sudden cardiac arrest incidents happen in an exercise-related environment or a residential setting.
Lisa Orazietti learned the importance of CPR/AED use first hand as she watched her boys at a Pop Warner practice in New Jersey. An 11 year old cheerleader, Janet, collapsed at practice from sudden cardiac arrest. Although CPR was administered by her coach, an AED was not present at the field. Since then, Lisa has dedicated her life to educating people about heart awareness and certifying regular people in CPR/AED training.
Formerly a school teacher, Lisa brings a different side of CPR training. Most certified instructors are first responders or healthcare professionals, so their approach to the training is more clinical and proves to be daunting for the average person. Lisa brings the comfort and nurturing nature of a school environment to her lessons, eliminating fear and intimidation in CPR/AED training to allow anyone to become certified.
