One of our greatest fears as parents is to remain helpless if your child stopped breathing.
With summer finally here, hot days means pool fun. But that fun can stop short if a life-threatening accident occurs. If you have children who have not yet learned to swim, and if left unattended around a swimming pool, a drowning followed by cardiac arrest come occur in under a minute.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada advises that being able to administer CPR and basic first aid during the first few minutes of a medical emergency is crucial to the survival and recovery of a child.
Having these skills allows you to become a vital first aider when help is needed. Everyone has the power to save a life. On average, it takes emergency personnel 12 minutes to arrive on the scene. For someone who is choking or has drowned that may be too late.
In this CPR course, you will learn the basic steps to CPR and how to help your child if they start chocking. This will help you to take control and help during an emergency. Get certified and receive a certificate from the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
