A Fitness Nutritionist analyzes an individual's diet to help manage his/her weight. Prior to developing an individual's dietary plan, a Fitness Nutritionist will consider one's lifestyle, health conditions and exercise regimen. A Fitness Nutritionist is well familiar with the effects of diet as they relate to exercise and can provide expert advice on food strategies and/or dietary supplementation to help ensure measurable fitness results. Because of focused study, he/she is well versed in all major dietary components and understands the relevant role each plays in successfully managing body weight.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency first aid procedure for a victim of cardiac arrest. It can be performed by trained laypersons, health care or emergency response professionals. CPR is performed on an unconscious individual who is not breathing normally and continued until the underlying cause can be identified and a pulse is restored (called Return of Spontaneous Circulation or ROSC). The majority of CPR protocols consist of chest compressions and breaths. The intention, in both cases, is the maintenance of oxygenated blood flow to the brain and the heart, thereby extending the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage. This credential enables the instruction of safe and approved CPR.
