I attended CPR123 with Paramedic American Heart Association Instructor Paul E. Abate a few days ago in Manhattan. I was intrigued by the new approaches to CPR. My motivation to attend (retired CNP, MPH, Ed.D.) was to refresh my skills to possibly assist an individual collapsing in the streets (if this ever happened in my presence). Mr. Abate was absolutely wonderful; a great trainer skillfully mixing the media, his own demonstration, and the practicum. He appropriately referred to the ” CPR book” by indicating the page number. He covered all topics with skill, humor, and live examples based on his experience. He responded to all questions from the audience. Manikins and others were updated from the past and excellent for training. I strongly encourage CPR123 to keep him as a trainer as long as he is interested in training individuals (health and others) who are interested in helping ordinary New Yorkers. Thank you Mr. Abate, for being such a motivational leader. Gilberte V.
