Online CPR Training

G-Medical has just started a new initiative and it begins with continuing education. We would like to continue education throughout the year or two years that most certifications last.

With this being said we launched our online portion of our CPR class, please click here to see our CPR training videos on specialized knowledge that could be tailored to caregivers dealing with children who are autistic or security guards securing facilities with multiple people of different age groups presenting different problems.

These different career fields need specialized training and in our CPR class we’re only able to give a general education. We like to keep our classes limited to only 3 to 4 hours but our education and curriculum could last from 8-12 hours.

So with that being said we started to push a lot of our training into books and training videos so that our students can be more prepared either before they come to our class or if they leave our class they can always stay on top of the latest training that can help them to be on top of the newest techniques over the 2 years of their certification.

G Medical went out of their way to provide an abundance of extra training videos so that our students can learn what they need to learn when they need to learn it without having to take a three four hour class once every two years. Sure when you come to our class we want you to learn your skills like compressions, or mouth-to-mouth breaths,  using the bag mask device, or even how to stop bleeding and applying a tourniquet.

We wanted to take it even a step further so that we know where give you the absolute best education possible.

CPR BLS For Health Care Providers

BLS stands for basic life support that relates to a CPR card normally reserved for healthcare providers. The reason why so many people get confused about what this is, is because their jobs tell them they need to get a CPR card but based on the job that you have if it’s in the healthcare field of some nature you will be required to have a BLS for healthcare provider CPR card.

So when you get a card it will say BLS provider but in all actuality it is a CPR card, get it?  I Understand the confusion, below is an example of what the card will look like. On the last line in small writing it actually says CPR AED.CPR BLS For Health Care Providers

In 2016 the card changed from health care provider to BLS provider. BLS in essence would be based on a team resuscitation attempt, meaning two or more people are going to work together to save someone’s life doing CPR.

If someone were to come into the emergency room where their life is literally on the line, there could be five or more people working together on that victim to save their life.

  • Someone may have to set up an IV give ACLS medications
  • Someone may have to do compressions
  • Someone may have to intubate the victim and do some rescue breaths
  • There will be a doctor overseeing the situation
  • Someone may be administering the difibulator
  • Somebody will need to document the entire emergency response

In 2016 The American Heart Association came out with a new CPR video that discusses Team Dynamics. These Team Dynamics in essence are all about knowing your role before the emergency happens and knowing your limitations this is what BLS is all about.

Here at G medical CPR this is what we teach you but just to give you a heads up when your job ask you for a BLS card or a CPR card and we give you a CPR card that says BLS on top of it they are synonyms.

This is why we wrote this blog post just so you can understand the difference between BLS and CPR they are exactly the same, they’re just referring to a higher level of CPR where health care providers who may be in the high-risk environment will have to deal with CPR on a regular basis.

We’ve had students that do CPR every day of their job, they work in the emergency room and they give us feedback on how important these resuscitation the skills are

Spanish Class Inglewood

The last time we wrote this blog we were trying to implement a Spanish class that can tend to our Spanish speaking students, since it is the majority language in Los Angeles, CA.

medicalspanishflyerWell in seeing this vast disparity with our english speakers in the Los Angeles we decided to implement a spanish class that will help all those looking for work to be bi-lingual so that you could become more employeble, and guess what we are offering an introductory offer completely FREE for the next 4 weeks

This is a great opportunity to come to the class to see if this is right for you considering we have a great teacher, you will most likely be able to speak read and write Spanish by the completion of the class.

We are offering this class so that we can get the person that is looking for a job more employable, we have stretegic partnerships with tthe iunglewood one stop work source un emplooyment off ice and they are always looking for bi-lingual speakers since we have so many spanish speakers in this area.

Spanish Classes In Los Angeles

We started this CPR class to give our Inglewood residents a closer place to renew their CPR certification, and as it turns out we have turn this place into a location where you can get many things you need to get a job in the first place.

Since we started with CPR  we have added DOT physicals for truck drivers that needed to get a job and even to get this commercial drivers license in the first place, after that we added drug testing which is also a requirement for those employers who are asking for that service.

CPR Class in Spanish

CPR Class in Spanish

G- Medical CPR has been trying tirelessly to establish a spanish cirriculum that will help some of our spanish speaking students who just speak spanish. We understand that there aren’t very many options out there and considering the hispanic population in the area this is an outrage. So we joined forces with some really great teachers from cal state dominguez hills. to bring you spanish cpr please check this video out just to get an idea of how to do cpr in case you ever need to use it in an emergency situation.



Spanish CPR Class

Many times there will be students who can speak english pretty good but just cant read english to great and to pass our test with the american heart association, you can only miss 4 questions, thats 84%. We want our spanish speaking students to feel comfortable with our cirriculum so that they can really react in an emergency situation.  PS if you don’t understand this page too well please hit the translate button at the top of the page.

These are the steps to cpr written in spanish, it’s more important that you know what to do rather than just pay for a class , in fact many times if our class size is pretty small you can always join a class for free if you do not need certification and just need to learn how to do the actual procedure in case of an emergency cardiac arrest.

Life Advice Upon Turning Age 30

The days are long but the decades are short

1) Never put your family, friends, or significant other low on your priority list. Prefer a handful of truly close friends to a hundred acquaintances. Don’t lose touch with old friends. Occasionally stay up until the sun rises talking to people. Have parties.

2) Life is not a dress rehearsal—this is probably it. Make it count. Time is extremely limited and goes by fast. Do what makes you happy and fulfilled—few people get remembered hundreds of years after they die anyway. Don’t do stuff that doesn’t make you happy (this happens most often when other people want you to do something). Don’t spend time trying to maintain relationships with people you don’t like, and cut negative people out of your life. Negativity is really bad. Don’t let yourself make excuses for not doing the things you want to do.

3) How to succeed: pick the right thing to do (this is critical and usually ignored), focus, believe in yourself (especially when others tell you it’s not going to work), develop personal connections with people that will help you, learn to identify talented people, and work hard. It’s hard to identify what to work on because original thought is hard.

4) On work: it’s difficult to do a great job on work you don’t care about. And it’s hard to be totally happy/fulfilled in life if you don’t like what you do for your work. Work very hard—a surprising number of people will be offended that you choose to work hard—but not so hard that the rest of your life passes you by. Aim to be the best in the world at whatever you do professionally. Even if you miss, you’ll probably end up in a pretty good place. Figure out your own productivity system—don’t waste time being unorganized, working at suboptimal times, etc. Don’t be afraid to take some career risks, especially early on. Most people pick their career fairly randomly—really think hard about what you like, what fields are going to be successful, and try to talk to people in those fields.

5) On money: Whether or not money can buy happiness, it can buy freedom, and that’s a big deal. Also, lack of money is very stressful. In almost all ways, having enough money so that you don’t stress about paying rent does more to change your wellbeing than having enough money to buy your own jet. Making money is often more fun than spending it, though I personally have never regretted money I’ve spent on friends, new experiences, saving time, travel, and causes I believe in.

 6) Talk to people more. Read more long content and less tweets. Watch less TV. Spend less time on the Internet.

7) Don’t waste time. Most people waste most of their time, especially in business.

 8) Don’t let yourself get pushed around. As Paul Graham once said to me, “People can become formidable, but it’s hard to predict who”. (There is a big difference between confident and arrogant. Aim for the former, obviously.)

9) Have clear goals for yourself every day, every year, and every decade.

10) However, as valuable as planning is, if a great opportunity comes along you should take it. Don’t be afraid to do something slightly reckless. One of the benefits of working hard is that good opportunities will come along, but it’s still up to you to jump on them when they do.

11) Go out of your way to be around smart, interesting, ambitious people. Work for them and hire them (in fact, one of the most satisfying parts of work is forging deep relationships with really good people). Try to spend time with people who are either among the best in the world at what they do or extremely promising but totally unknown. It really is true that you become an average of the people you spend the most time with.

12) Minimize your own cognitive load from distracting things that don’t really matter. It’s hard to overstate how important this is, and how bad most people are at it. Get rid of distractions in your life. Develop very strong ways to avoid letting crap you don’t like doing pile up and take your mental cycles, especially in your work life.

13) Keep your personal burn rate low. This alone will give you a lot of opportunities in life.

14) Summers are the best.

15) Don’t worry so much. Things in life are rarely as risky as they seem.  Most people are too risk-averse, and so most advice is biased too much towards conservative paths.

16) Ask for what you want.

17) If you think you’re going to regret not doing something, you should probably do it. Regret is the worst, and most people regret far more things they didn’t do than things they did do. When in doubt, kiss the boy/girl.

18) Exercise. Eat well. Sleep. Get out into nature with some regularity.

19) Go out of your way to help people. Few things in life are as satisfying. Be nice to strangers. Be nice even when it doesn’t matter.

20) Youth is a really great thing. Don’t waste it. In fact, in your 20s, I think it’s ok to take a “Give me financial discipline, but not just yet” attitude. All the money in the world will never get back time that passed you by.

21) Tell your parents you love them more often. Go home and visit as often as you can.

22) This too shall pass.

23) Learn voraciously.

24) Do new things often. This seems to be really important. Not only does doing new things seem to slow down the perception of time, increase happiness, and keep life interesting, but it seems to prevent people from calcifying in the ways that they think. Aim to do something big, new, and risky every year in your personal and professional life.

25) Remember how intensely you loved your boyfriend/girlfriend when you were a teenager? Love him/her that intensely now. Remember how excited and happy you got about stuff as a kid? Get that excited and happy now.

26) Don’t screw people and don’t burn bridges. Pick your battles carefully.

27) Forgive people.

28) Don’t chase status. Status without substance doesn’t work for long and is unfulfilling.

29) Most things are ok in moderation. Almost nothing is ok in extreme amounts.

30) Existential angst is part of life. It is particularly noticeable around major life events or just after major career milestones. It seems to particularly affect smart, ambitious people. I think one of the reasons some people work so hard is so they don’t have to spend too much time thinking about this. Nothing is wrong with you for feeling this way; you are not alone.

31) Be grateful and keep problems in perspective. Don’t complain too much. Don’t hate other people’s success (but remember that some people will hate your success, and you have to learn to ignore it).

32) Be a doer, not a talker.

33) Given enough time, it is possible to adjust to almost anything, good or bad. Humans are remarkable at this.

34) Think for a few seconds before you act. Think for a few minutes if you’re angry.

35) Don’t judge other people too quickly. You never know their whole story and why they did or didn’t do something. Be empathetic.

36) The days are long but the decades are short.
