Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) and Hands Only CPR – Two-Part Seminar
Keynote Speaker: Jennifer McManus, AS, EMT-P, EMS Coordinator – Bayfront Health Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda
Thursday, January 10 | 10:00am | Special Interest Room | No Charge| Pre-Registration Required
This one-hour session will cover two parts:
(Part one) Over 800,000 people die in the U.S. every year from a heart attack and on average, 50% of these patients displayed, but ignored, the warning signs. Early heart attack care (EHAC) education asks you to learn the signs and symptoms of a heart attack so you can become an active bystander to save a life – even if it’s yours.
(Part two) Hands-Only CPR is a method of CPR that was recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) in 2010. It is intended for bystanders untrained in CPR or for situations when the rescuer is unable or unwilling to provide mouth-to-mouth ventilations. Hands-Only CPR is 10 times more likely to save someone in cardiac arrest then not doing anything.
