Did you know?

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure involving chest compressions (pressing down on the chest) and artificial respiration (rescue breathing). It has the power to restore blood flow to someone suffering cardiac arrest, keeping them alive until an ambulance arrives.

What is cardiac arrest?

A cardiac arrest is when the heart stops beating regularly and can no longer pump blood through the body. There are a variety of causes – heart attack, drowning, stroke, electrocution, suffocation or other trauma.

Why get trained?

Once the heart stops pumping, seconds count. For every minute that passes without help, a person’s chance of surviving drops by about 10 percent. But if you know how to respond to a cardiac arrest, their odds of survival and recovery may increase by 30 percent or more.

Learning CPR is easy and inexpensive – just a few hours could make an important difference in someone’s life.

Programming – January to June
