Automated External Defibrillation (AED)

Sudden Cardiac Arrest . . . a treatable epidemic

In Canada, over one-hundred people per day are killed by Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The tragedy is that perhaps half of them or more could have survived if:

a) a witness immediately started basic chest compression CPR and

b) the patient received a rapid shock from an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

These devices are safe and easy to use. We teach the basic steps in every First Aid and CPR course we do. However, a truly effective AED program does require more intense training because the problem is assuring rapid treatment. There is simply no time to second guess oneself. The rescue steps must be immediate, which means that in addition to training and equipment there must be a response plan.

We offer two programs:
