CPR ClassesThe Bellevue Fire Department has been providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes to residents since 1973.
American Heart Association Heartsaver Infant CPR Class: The hands-on Infant CPR course teaches CPR and choking intervention for infants from birth to one year of age. American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Providers: This six-hour class is for health care providers and is offered to groups, as needed.
Our combined CPR & First Aid class covers all the requirements for Childcare Provider Certification, and is approved by the State of Texas Childcare Licensing, Foster and Adoption services as well as Child Protective Services. A CPR face shield, also commonly known as a face mask, is used during CPR to provide rescue breaths to the casualty.
The one way filter valve in the mask prevents the entry of mucus, vomit or blood into the rescuer’s mouth when he or she is giving rescue breaths into the mouth of the patient. An unused CPR pocket mask is kept in a pouch or envelop and is often included in first aid kits. However, note that a CPR face shield will not enhance the effectiveness of rescue breaths, it only acts as a safety device when performing it on a patient. Once you've completed the course you even get a free first aid certificate to download - nifty!
Our missionTo provide a range of free to access CPR tests to enable people to develop and improve their knowledge of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Choking is the coughing spasm and sputtering that happen when liquids or solids get into the windpipe.
As long as your child is breathing and coughing, do nothing except encourage him to cough the material up by himself.
Grasp the child from behind, just below the lower ribs but above the navel, in bear-hug fashion. Give a sudden upward and backward jerk (at a 45-degree angle) to try to squeeze all the air out of the chest and pop the lodged object out of the windpipe.


If the child is too heavy for you to suspend from your arms, lay him on his back on the floor. If breathing has not resumed, turn the infant over, again keeping the head lower than the chest. Alternate back blows and chest thrusts until the object comes out, breathing returns, or the infant becomes unconscious. IF THE CHILD OR INFANT BECOMES UNCONSCIOUS (UNRESPONSIVE), begin chest compressions (hands-only CPR). Quickly open the mouth and look inside to see if there is any object that can be removed with a sweep of your finger (usually there is not). Place the child on the back on a firm surface and begin chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute.
If you know advanced CPR, also begin rescue breathing in a cycle of 2 rescue breaths for every 30 chest compressions. Choking can be life-threatening, so try to prevent it from happening by not giving young children foods or small objects that are most likely to cause choking.
Foods that are most likely to cause choking are nuts of any kind, sunflower seeds, orange seeds, cherry pits, watermelon seeds, gum, hard candies, popcorn, raw carrots, raw peas, raw celery, and tough meats. The soft foods that most often cause complete blockage and death are hot dogs, sausages, large pieces of any meat, grapes, gummy candy, and caramels. Choking on a rubber balloon is the leading cause of deaths resulting from choking on objects other than foods.

The mask ensures that germs, blood and any bodily fluids are not transferred from the victim to the rescuer, reducing risk of infectious diseases.


Put your hands on both sides of the abdomen, just below the ribs, and apply sudden, strong bursts of upward pressure.
Call the rescue squad if your child chokes on a liquid and turns blue, becomes limp, or passes out.
Most incidents occur when children suddenly inhale a deflated balloon they have been chewing.
This region tends to have more trained citizens than any other area of the country and that factor helps contribute to many successful resuscitations. Since that time we have trained thousands of central Texans providing them with realistic solutions to everyday emergencies. Upon completion of our class, you will receive certification cards for CPR and First Aid that are both valid for 2 years. Complete blockage occurs when solid food (for example, a piece of hot dog) or a foreign object (such as a small toy) gets stuck.
Don't give your child anything to drink because fluids may take up space needed for the passage of air. They do not have enough molar teeth to chew them well and they may not understand that some seeds should be spat out rather than swallowed. The child will be in a state of panic and, if the obstruction isn't removed in 1 or 2 minutes, the child will pass out. Other items that can cause choking in young children include coins, marbles, pen or marker caps, and small button-type batteries.
