Cardiac First Responder Community

Cardiac First Responder CommunityCPR-AED1-e1410454720491-919x609

The Cardiac First Response – Community Course is designed to provide the ability to recognise several life-threatening emergencies, provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner, as well as recognising signs & symptoms of Stroke, and administration of Aspirin to patients with an indication of cardiac chest pain

Did you know?
The brain can survive for up to about six minutes after the heart stops. The reason to learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is that if CPR is started within six minutes of cardiac arrest, the brain may survive the lack of oxygen. After about six minutes without CPR, however, the brain begins to die.

Who’s it for?
A Cardiac First Responder may be part of the Emergency Medical Services, a Healthcare Practitioner, member of a Community First Responder Group or any member of the public who has completed the PHECC recognised course.
