Did you know…

Majority of Canadians say they would recognize the signs if someone were experiencing a heart attack or another cardiac emergency, fewer than half say they have the skills to help in this common and life-threatening emergency.

The Canadian Red Cross challenges everyone to get the training they need to help save a life. Effective bystander CPR, when used in conjunction with an AED and administered immediately following cardiac arrest, can double a person’s chance of survival.

  • More than 50,000 Canadians die of heart disease every year. 
  • Nearly 60% of Canadians who have had to perform first aid did so to help a family member.
  • Canadians who have taken a first aid course are considerably more confident in their skills to be able to help someone experiencing a medical emergency.

Canadian Red Cross CPR courses also include training on the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs): how to assess a person in cardiac arrest, determine whether defibrillation (a shock to the heart to restore normal beating) should be performed, and use an AED unit to deliver a shock if required.
