CPR & AED Course Goals

You should not expect to control all the variables in a real emergency. But knowing how to provide adequate care and react appropriately often tips the balance in favour of full recovery instead of a long-term disability, or life versus death.

The person you save by performing CPR or using an AED defibrillator could be a loved-one, a close friend, or a coworker.Learn how to respond to victims of a heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest, unresponsiveness, difficulty breathing, and choking. Prompt and early defibrillation of a patient’s abnormal heart rhythm is vital – even seconds count. An AED is a computerized and portable machine that automatically analyses the cause of the cardiac arrest and if appropriate reliably delivers a shock to the patient in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
