Debunking First Aid Myths and Misconceptions


If you have never been to a first aid class, then you are more likely to believe in first aid myths. Over the years, there have been changes to rules and regulations when it comes to saving lives. This is to avoid mistakes that have been made in the past and find ways to perform better and more efficient means to provide immediate care.

In this blog, we will talk about the most common first-aid myths that should be debunked. We hope you will learn some things here before registering for our basic life support courses!

Myth #1:

Mouth-to-mouth is required when doing CPR. Experts encourage first aid responders to prioritize proper and correct chest compressions over mouth-to-mouth contact. Mouth-to-mouth must only be performed if the victim is a child or in a drowning accident.

Myth #2:

My loved ones are healthy. CPR training is not needed. CPR can save the life of someone who is not breathing and has no heartbeat due to asphyxiation, cardiac arrest, drowning, electrocution, or a heart attack. By enrolling in life support training in Gaithersburg, Maryland, you will learn to assess if someone needs CPR, how to calmly respond to the situation, as well as learning how to utilize an automatic electronic defibrillator.

Myth #3:

I can learn CPR online. CPR is best learned hands-on and face-to-face with a certified instructor, such as Comfi-Kare CPR. Here, you’ll gain the confidence and skills to respond to an emergency. Training services in Maryland will practice your response to real-world scenarios, and your instructor will answer any question and address any concerns you may have.
