Toronto CPR Course

Courses on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) provide the skills needed to recognize and respond to cardiovascular emergencies and choking for adults, children, and babies depending on the level of CPR chosen. Courses meet legislation requirements for provincial/
territorial worker safety and insurance boards, and include the latest CPR guidelines and training in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).

Cardiovascular disease is often caused by correctable problems such as an unhealth diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking. In Canada approximately 205 people die from cardiovascular disease and stroke every day. ¹. 28% of all deaths in Canada are from heart disease. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in Canada, claiming more than 33,600 lives per year.

These deaths often occur outside of a hospital, but the survival rate could double if the victims were treated with CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED). Think about it “the life you save may be of someone you know and love”.
