Heartstart Discovery is running two-hour training sessions in emergency life support for members of the public throughout October 2022.
Being able to perform emergency life support (ELS), a set of actions needed to keep someone alive until professional help arrives, gives a casualty the best possible chance of survival.
Courses are free-of-charge and no medical knowledge is required in order to undertake one. It only takes two hours to learn the skills which may save a life and it is very likely that the person you help may be a family member or someone close to you.
The sessions cover:
caring for an unconscious person who is breathing
caring for an unconscious person who is not breathing and performing CPR
awareness of defibrillators
how to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and how to deal with it
Places are available during October 2022:
Friday,14 October – 10am – 12pm – Dundee
Wednesday,19 October – 6.30 – 8.30 pm – Dundee
Friday, 21 October – 12 – 2 pm – Arbroath
Saturday, 22 October – 10am – 12pm – Perth
Friday, 28 October – 11am – 1 pm – Montrose
Make it one of your aims to learn these life saving skills, or, ensure that your ELS skills are up to date.
Training sessions can also be arranged on request for groups, organisations and clubs.
