The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region and the Cornwall Centre are partnering up to increase awareness of hands only chest compressions and automated external defibrillator (AED) use.

 

Cornwall Centre Security and Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region PAD Program will be on site providing information and demonstrations on chest compressions and AED’s. It will provide opportunities to learn or refresh these lifesaving skills.

We will be running 20 minute non certified sessions that you can sign up for. Up to 10 people can sign for each session which occurs every half hour throughout the day. We encourage local business to participate and register in groups. Participants will be entered to win a Cornwall Centre gift card.

Please contact dbailey@20vic.com to register individually or as a group. We encourage all retailers and local businesses to participate as you never know when you may need to use chest compressions or an AED to save a life.

Important Facts
  • Cardiac refers to the heart. Arrest means stop. Sudden cardiac arrest is the sudden and unexpected loss of heart function.
  • Up to 40,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in Canada. That’s one cardiac arrest every 12 minutes.
  • When an AED and Chest Compressions are immediately available, the chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest is substantially improved. Combined with Chest Compressions, the use of an AED may increase the likelihood of survival by 75% or more.
  • For every one minute delay in defibrillation from an AED, the survival rate of a cardiac arrest victim decreases by 7 to 10%.
  • Legislation in provinces across Canada protects individuals who use AEDs from liability when they are used in the context of saving a life.
  • When a Cardiac Arrest is witnessed, it is often someone you know like a co-worker or family member.
  • The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region has over 800 AED’s registered with 911!
What’s holding YOU back from learning how to save a life?
