Hospital offers life-saving courses in CPR

The Bermuda Hospitals Board is offering weekend training courses in CPR in an effort to prevent deaths from heart attacks.

A BHB spokeswoman said: “A cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, and the victim could be someone you know and love.

“BHB is pleased to support the American Heart Association and its important mission to increase survival from cardiac arrest. The organisation is asking all Bermuda residents who are able, to learn the life-saving skills of hands-only CPR.”

BHB will offer the Heartsaver CPR and defibrillator course for $20. Training takes approximately two hours and is done to music.

According to health experts, people are more likely to remember the correct CPR rate when trained to the beat of a familiar song.

The courses will take place on June 1 and June 2 at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
