If a member of your family suffered a medical emergency, you could certainly call for trained emergency medical responders, but what would you do while you're waiting for them to arrive? Every second counts during a medical emergency.

Recognizing the early signs and symptoms of common medical conditions and providing appropriate treatment can mean a better outcome for the patient and can greatly reduce the seriousness of the illness, which means a shorter hospital stay and lower medical costs. It's also very satisfying to know how to help someone in a time of need.

High Altitude Vacationing - ONLINE - Self Paced

$50

with Carole Freeman, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Dec 10, 2023

This is an online course.  You can take this course anytime.

Don't spoil your trip to a higher altitude - condition your body first.  People often feel shortness of breath, lightheaded, and fatigue at higher altitudes because their bodies work harder while taking in less oxygen.  Anxiety increases, and your enjoyment decreases.  

You'll have more energy, feel better, and enjoy your trip when you condition your body first to increase oxygenation and endurance.  Do the same preparation that elite athletes do with this 4-week, self-paced course at home, even if you live at sea level.
