Anastasia's Health Happenings sends a big THANK-YOU to Recovery Centers of America (RCOA) for inviting us to your Westminster facility to update the CPR training for your staff!
Drug and alcohol dependence causes multiple metabolic issues in the body, and life threatening issues can arise both with acute intoxication and in detoxification treatment. Cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, and choking are all situations that can arise in the addiction treatment setting.
The American Heart Association updates their treatment guidelines every 5 years--and recently released an additional guideline update. Their emphasis is providing good strong chest compressions during that period before paramedics arrive on scene.
Recovery Centers of America (RCOA) in Westminster MA provides detox services and substance abuse treatment services for both drug and alcohol problems, and is proactive in preparing its staff with current American Heart Association CPR Guidelines for possible emergencies.
