Learn CPR & AED

The EHS AED Registry Program suggests getting trained in full by a certified agency (e.g. Heart & Stroke, St. John Ambulance, Canadian Red Cross, Lifesaving Society, Canadian Ski Patrol). In the meantime or as a refresher, please view these quick and informative videos. The last two videos are courtesy of Canadian Heart & Stroke.

Dr. Andrew Travers, Emergency Health Services’ Provincial Medical Director, shares some knowledge on the Chain of Survival and the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest.
Paramedics Laura and Ian show you how to perform layperson/bystander CPR and use an AED. Please note that this was recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic and they have added the step of covering the mouth and nose while performing CPR. Hands-only CPR is being performed here and is suitable for adults.
