CPR and FIRST AID

CPR and FIRST AID

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. It is a procedure in which you basically try to restart someone's breathing or heart by manually compressing the person's chest and pushing air into the lungs by breathing into the person's mouth.

FIRST AID is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and/or promote recovery

It is most likely that everyone will be experience or witness a crisis at some point in their lives. And while there are trained professionals available to offer their service and expertese in the event of a crisis, minutes and even seconds can make the difference to life or death when it comes to trauma of the body.

You can get CPR and First Aid certified in your community through Red Cross, and The Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Did you know, death can occur after only 4-6 minutes without oxygen? So the sooner CPR is instigated, the better the patient's chance of surviving.

WHY SHOULD I GET CERTIFIED?

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Breathing and heart beats can stop for a number of reasons, but death does not always have to be the outcome. CPR was designed to increase the chance of survival!
