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
  • sweating
  • upper body discomfort
  • nausea
  • shortness of breath
  • light-headedness

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.
