CPR and AED
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been around for over a century and its techniques have changed at least 20 times within the past 100 years. Up to date and effective CPR training can mean the difference between life and death. CPR is crucial in the moments directly after cardiac arrest. It is in those moments where CPR training is the most effective at maintaining life and giving an opportunity to the victim to be revived. St Mark James is the leading provider of stand-alone CPR and combined first aid and CPR courses. All CPR courses, regardless of provider, also offer training and certification in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). Using an AED drastically increases the chances of survival for victims of cardiac arrest. Heart disease takes the lives of at least 1/4 of North Americans and by learning effective and up-to-date CPR you can drastically increase the chances of survival for victims.
