CPR Training in Calgary

It’s common knowledge that heart attacks (cardiac arrest) are a common cause of sudden death. CPR training can help prevent many of those deaths.

According to The Red Cross of Canada, the signs and symptoms of a heart attack are:

  • Squeezing chest pain
  • Problems breathing
  • Abdominal or back pain (more common in women)
  • Cold, sweaty skin
  • Skin that is bluish or paler than normal
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Denial
  • Jaw pain

Note: Not everyone experiences chest pain during a heart attack.

During a heart attack, many women, elderly people, and people with diabetes tend to experience “soft signs”, including:

  • Mild, unfocused chest discomfort that: Comes and goes
  • Doesn’t feel like pain
  • Starts mild and gets continually stronger
  • Gets better with rest
  • Gets worse with activity
  • Tiredness
  • Gastric discomfort
  • Flu-like symptoms

Note: Men may have these signs as well.

Delaying care for a heart attack increases the risk of long-term problems or even death. People with knowledge and training to provide CPR and use AEDs can help someone suffering from a heart attack until paramedics or other medical help arrives. For every 1 minute delay in defibrillation, the survival rate of a cardiac arrest victim decreases by 7% to 10%. Combined with CPR, the use of an AED may increase the likelihood of survival by 75% or more.
