Holy Family’s Health and Wellness Ministry is sponsoring its annual CPR Class. Each year over 350,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occur in the U.S. Statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. That life could be someone you know - a child, spouse, parent, friend or a stranger. Cardiac arrests frequently happen at home but as we know can happen anywhere. By knowing CPR and what actions to take, it can only help.
Date: Thursday, April 27 – 9 am to 12 noon Holy Family Parish Hall
$15 fee. Reference book included. Class size limited to 16
The Family and Friends CPR Program through the American Heart Association will be taught by certified CPR instructors. The use of a video, instruction, demonstration and practice on mannequins (adult and infant) will be provided. NO TESTING! No certification but fundamental learning skills on how to perform CPR will be taught for the adult, child and infant. What to do if someone is choking will also be demonstrated. A demonstration on the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) will also be provided. (An AED is provided at each parish church site and Sacred Heart School. Check Holy Family’s Health & Wellness online site for AED locations.)

Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating. We hear stories of how CPR maintained circulation and breathing until emergency medical help was able to arrive to further assist. New parents, adults, grandparents, if you need to learn CPR or need a refresher, please call today to register for this valuable life-saving opportunity.
