Administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to someone within the first moments of cardiac arrest will greatly increase the likelihood of survival. CPR combined with Automated External Defibrillation (AED) is proven more effective to increasing the chances of survival. Would you know what to do if someone needed your help?
“This program benefits our community and is an opportunity for us to give back and make an important difference in someone’s life” says John Laking, Rotary Club of Barrie Organizer. Home may be where the heart is, but it’s also the place where most cardiac arrests occur. About 80% of cardiac arrests – when the heart stops beating and the person shows no sign of life – happen in the home. Learning CPR is easy and with training, you will be able to provide life-saving CPR until medical help arrives.
