Aimed at reducing the amount of classroom time needed for flight crews to remain AED and CPR qualified, a new series of Web-based training courses has been announced by MedAire, Inc., the leading provider of fully integrated medical services and equipment to aviation.

The Phoenix-based aeromedical training company is initially offering recurrent training modules in automated external defibrillators (AEDs), blood-borne pathogens and tools for medical resource management. The courseware covers emergencies that most often take place in the aviation and maritime environments. Animated tutorials simulate common medical situations and students are given three-dimensional medical equipment to apply care. The entire lesson is hands-on interactive.
