PHECC Cardiac First Response (Wexford)

The sudden unexpected death of a loved one, work colleague,friend, neighbour or member of your local community is a very distressing and emotional situation to come to terms with. Emotions of grief are often compounded by a sense of ‘if only I could have done something’ or ‘I felt so helpless not knowing what to do’.  Following the sudden death of a person we know and love, people often feel the need to respond in a positive way.  This could be by learning how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or by fundraising for an automated external defibrillator (AED) for the local community.

This course is a comprehensive and practical one day course designed to train personnel in the treatment of a patient with breathing difficulty and/or cardiac arrest and the operation of AED defibrillators for Adult, Child and Infants and deal with heart attack and angina.
Participants will be trained to develop a very high standard in the delivery of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use.
