CPR/Universal Precautions/Blood Borne Pathogens course Instruction & Certification
CPR is a combination of chest compressions and breaths and provides critical blood flow and oxygen to the heart and brain. If you perform CPR within three to five (3-5) minutes of collapse, it reduces the chance of permanent damage and helps save lives.
Universal Precautions are the set of guidelines to help prevent healthcare workers' exposure to infectious bodily fluids and other tissues of the body. Every patient that a healthcare worker works with should be considered infectious whether they know that they are or not. For example, a nurse needs to follow universal precautions as he or she is drawing blood from every patient. When universal precautions are followed properly, they can greatly decrease the likelihood that a healthcare worker will contract a disease from a patient they are working with. Diseases can be carried in many of the body's fluids and through the air that people breathe. The bodily fluid that most people think about that carries disease is the blood.
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to blood borne pathogens.

The TB skin test/PPD is also called the Mantoux tuberculin skin test (TST). A TB skin test requires visits with a certified health care provider. On the first visit the test is placed; on the second visit the health care provider reads the test.
The TB skin test is performed by injecting a small amount of fluid (called tuberculin) into the skin on the lower part of the arm. A person given the tuberculin skin test must return within 48 to 72 hours to have a certified/trained health care worker look for a reaction on the arm. The result depends on the size of the raised, hard area or swelling.
