Trauma continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the 10-44 age group, killing more young Americans than cancer, heart disease, and stroke combined. Trauma claims a life every six minutes and is responsible for serious disability every three seconds. Yet more people are surviving critical injuries than ever before. This is due to the training of expert trauma care providers with advanced trauma skills.

We are pleased to coordinate professional educational opportunities for trauma physicians, nurses, and emergency medical professionals.

The good news is cardiac emergencies don’t have to turn into tragedies. The objective of CPR training is to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest by increasing the number of rescuers prepared to phone 911, provide early CPR, and use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
