The next "Be A HeartStarter" CPR Training Event is POSTPONED until Spring 2018.
HeartStarter is in need of sponsors for 2018. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if your business or organization would like to be a supporter of our event, which has improved the cardiac survival rate in Lafayette by nearly 20% over the course of its 16 years.
Because an Emergency Can Occur Anytime . . .
The Heartstarter learning program can help increase the survival rates by training people just like you to respond quickly. The sad truth is most people don't survive a cardiac arrest. Four to six minutes is the window of opportunity for someone to act before it is too late, but fewer than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from someone nearby. Join us on May 3rd at the Cajundome.
CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is a procedure in which you basically try to restart someone's breathing or heart by manually compressing the person's chest and pushing air into the lungs by breathing into the person's mouth. The breathing portion of the procedure is known as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
