Jay Downey’s S.A.L.T. CPR/FIRSTAID Classes were perfect for
our Refugee Childcare Microenterprise Program With unique needs of our Refugee Clients. He was patient and effective in teaching along side an
interpreter, and maintained an energetic environment throughout the entire
course. He also mindful in incorporating the realistic
situations that our participants will face in the nature of their work. Participants felt comfortable to ask questions and discuss
scenarios that would require immediate First Aid or CPR assistance. Jay used a number of Teaching aids, which were useful in
explaining the information that he was presenting. He was well prepared with the technology needed for video
clips, and had enough materials for each participant To have a hands on learning experience. Each and every
participant was fully prepared and knowledgeable in both CPR/AED and First Aid by the conclusion of the Course. I highly recommend contacting S.A.L.T. if you are
considering a high-quality Training that will meet your specific needs This Program is Welcoming to Customers suggestions, and will
meet any Expectations you have.

The New York State Education Department requires that every
licensed dentist and hygienist in the state be certified in Advanced Life
Support techniques, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR. This
requirement must be renewed every two years.
The dentists and clinical staff at Lancaster Dental Associates
were re-certified by a CPR trainer in our office on April 14th. The review course
followed the curriculum set by the American Heart Association and the American
After a heart attack or stroke, the most important factor in
providing emergency life support is response time. In the case of a heart
attack, it is critical to maintain circulation to the brain if the heart has
stopped, or if a victim is not breathing. This can only be done by
administering chest compressions and/or artificial respiration until
professional responders such as Emergency Medical Technicians can come to the
scene. Also, the signs of a person suffering a stroke must be recognized, and
once again, time is critical in summoning professional help so that
anti-clotting agents can be started and then treatment continued at a hospital.
In order to be re-certified in CPR, each participant had to pass
a written exam that covered the situations discussed in the course, and then
had to demonstrate clinical proficiency in rescue techniques on a resuscitation
In the last several years, automatic external cardiac
defibrillators have become available for use in public facilities such as
airports or sports arenas in order to help restore normal cardiac rhythm after
sudden cardiac arrest. We have purchased one of these units at Lancaster Dental
Associates, and are trained in its use in case of an emergency.
We are committed to maintaining your dental
health and are also aware that your general health is very important. Having an
automatic defibrillator in our office can be critical in an emergency
situation, and demonstrates our concern for our patients’ well being. Please
call us at 683-0891 if you have any questions about our CPR training or any
other topic of interest.
