Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a technique that helps to save lives in the case of cardiac sudden death. When a person is having a heart attack that prevents enough blood circulation to provide oxygen to the brain and other organs, CPR can help temporarily provide that blood flow. CPR consists of simple techniques that anyone can learn. The American Heart Association has developed many teaching aids, books and courses to teach CPR.
The International Heart Institute of Montana Foundation is an accredited American Heart Association Training Center. A variety of basic life support and advanced life support courses are offered on a regular basis. For information about the courses, or to register, please call (406) 329-5668, or visit getcpr.org.
