More and more fire departments are carrying pet oxygen masks on their apparatus these days, making it crucial for first responders to understand how to appropriately size an oxygen mask for fit to the animal as well as what flow rates are required for different animals. Upon completing this class, first responders will feel comfortable performing CPR, applying an oxygen mask, and performing rescue breathing for both cats and dogs.
Training includes a step-by-step format for CPR, as well as how to treat heat and cold injuries, choking, snake bites, shock, bleeding control, poisoning, and more.
