Is CPR AED The Same as First Aid?

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), AED (automated external defibrillator), and First Aid are not the same.

CPR is the process of manually compressing a person’s chest in order to pump their heart for them and cycle blood through their body.

An AED is a medical device that can be used to restore the heartbeat of a person suffering from cardiac arrest. An AED checks for a heart rhythm and can deliver a shock to the heart if one is necessary.

First aid skills are used to administer basic medical care immediately after an injury occurs. These are usually temporary one-time treatments for minor injuries as well as initial treatments to more serious injuries before an injured person can get care from a medical professional. First aid skills include those intended to treat cuts, burns, broken bones, poisoning, stroke, heat exhaustion, shock, and more

Key CPR offers training and certification CPR, AEDs, and first aid. Most CPR classes also teach skills on the proper use of an AED allowing you to get two certifications from just one class. Our course bundles can also include training on first aid as well as infant and child lifesaving skills.

What is an AED Certification?

An AED certification demonstrates that you have been able to perform the use of an AED device up to a standard set by the certifier. The American Red Cross and American Heart Association are the two largest and most widely accepted certification providers. Key CPR is a licensed provider of Red Cross Certifications. A CPR and AED Certification is required by many employers to prove competence in important life saving skills and is also required by law for some jobs.

How long Does it Take to Get CPR AED Certified?

The time it takes to complete the Red Cross class depends on the training you choose and whether you are taking the classroom only or blended learning option where part of the class is completed online and part of it is completed in-person with a qualified CPR Instructor present.
For example, the Adult CPR/AED class will take:
Classroom only – About 2 hours and 38 minutes
Blended Learning – Online 1 hour and 5 minutes (completed via the internet at your convenience) plus 35 minutes of in-class instructor led skills learning with manikins.

How Much Does it Cost to Get CPR AED Certified?

The AED course cost depends on the certification curriculum and training provider that you select. However, many affordable AED certification classes are offered across Los Angeles and Orange Counties, including first rate CPR/AED training courses from the experts at Key CPR. Our prices start at $59 for an Adult CPR/AED class and certification.

How Long Does CPR First Aid and AED Certification Last?

The American Red Cross CPR certifications that Key CPR offers are good for 2 years.

What Does CPR and AED Stand For?

CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. It is the process for manually compressing a person’s check with the goal of pumping their heart and cycling blood through their body.

AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It is a medical device used to restore a heart beat in someone whose heart has stopped beating.

Training on both CPR and AEDs can be the difference between life and death for a person suffering cardiac arrest.

What is the Difference Between BLS and CPR?

As far as certifications go the American Red Cross and American Heart Association provide certifications called Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers that are designed for medical professionals rather than the general public. BLS courses covers a lot more ground than what you’d normally learn in a CPR/AED class designed for a layperson. It is important to check your employer’s requirements before registering for any training course.
