Did you know that 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes? Unfortunately, only about 46% of people who experience an out-of hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help that they need before professional help arrives. Statistically speaking, if you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a co-worker, a spouse, a parent, a child or a friend. CPR if performed, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival.
If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, (1) Call 911; and (2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest-you should push on the chest at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute. The beat of “Stayin’ Alive” is a perfect match for this.
What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest? SCA is the abrupt loss of heart function in a person who may or may not have heart disease. SCA occurs instantly or shortly after symptoms appear. Most SCAs are due to abnormal heart rhythms called arrhythmias. A common arrhythmia is ventricular fibrillation, in which the heart’s electrical impulses suddenly become chaotic and ineffective. Blood flow to the brain stops abruptly; the victim then collapses and quickly loses consciousness. Death usually follows unless a normal heart rhythm is restored within minutes. The rapid use of an AED on a victim of SCA can restore the victim’s normal heart rhythm. During the training we will demonstrate the use of an Automated External Defibrillator, or AED. It is an electronic device that when used properly, check a person’s heart rhythm. It can recognize a rhythm that requires a shock. And it can advise the rescuer when a shock is needed. The AED uses voice prompts, lights and text messages to tell the rescuer the steps to take.
The workshop will give participants an opportunity to practice using an AED trainer, with Hands-Only CPR. Rescue for choking emergencies will also be covered. No appointments are necessary for this event-drop by anytime from 9:00am-2:00!
