CPR, AED training at Gresham City Hall

The city of Gresham will host a CPR/AED training program from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 14, in the Trail Rooms at Gresham City Hall, 1333 N.W. Eastman Parkway. To register, visit GEM@GreshamOregon.gov. Class size is limited.

CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is an emergency procedure performed on people suffering cardiac arrest that provides a continuous flow of oxygen to the lungs and brain until the person regains consciousness or emergency care arrives.

An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is a portable electronic device that uses electricity to help restore heart rhythm. AEDs are so common now, they can be found in local supermarkets, shopping malls and airports for emergency use.
