WHY LEARN CPR:
Approximately 30,000 people suffer Cardiac Arrest in Australia each year with only about 10% surviving. Statistics show survival rates significantly increase when a AED is used on time. The ARC guidelines suggest that the survival rate however drops as much as 10% for every minute which passes without AED support during ventricular fibrillation, a shockable rhythm.

It focuses on providing participants with the competency and confidence to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and operate an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in an emergency in line with the ANZCOR Guidelines as endorsed by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC).
