November is Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Awareness Month. CPR is an emergency procedure that can help restore blood flow to someone who is suffering from a cardiac arrest (heart attack). It is important to act quickly once you see the signs of a cardiac arrest.
Signs of a heart attack include:
- chest discomfort
- upper body discomfort
- shortness of breath
The Heart & Stroke Foundation has put together a 3 step guide to helping someone who is experiencing a cardiac arrest. Remember, performing CPR promptly can help save a life.
