The Philips® HeartStart home defibrillator is designed to treat one of the nation’s leading killers – sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). When SCA strikes, the electrical system of the heart short-circuits. Shocking the heart into a normal rhythm is called defibrillation and is the only way to effectively treat the most common form of SCA.

sudden cardiac arrest

Know the facts:

• Fact: Each year, approximately 40,000 people in Canada experience a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). This represents 1 SCA every 12 minutes.
• Statistics in Manitoba show that there are 10 – 12 deaths DAILY from sudden cardiac arrest.
• Fact: Nearly 80% of all sudden cardiac arrest happen in the home. A majority of the time, someone is in the home who could potentially help. That someone could be YOU.
• Fact: The risk of sudden death is highest soon after a heart attack, yet SCA is often the first sign of heart disease. In fact, 50% of males and 64% of females who experience SCA report no prior symptoms of heart disease.
• Fact: With every minute that passes without a shock to the heart, an SCA victim’s chance of survival decreases by 7 to 10%. After 10 minutes, very few SCA victims survive.

Early Defibrillation Helps Save Lives

In the case of sudden cardiac arrest, minutes count. For the best chance of survival, a defibrillator should be used within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, less than 7% of SCA victims survive, largely because a defibrillator doesn’t arrive in time. While a defibrillator won’t save every victim, many more lives could be saved if more people were reached more quickly.

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over a million caregivers have received this training. Just as “CPR” skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for life assisting suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide and provide safety-for-now.

The workshop is designed for all caregivers (any person over age 15 in a position of trust). This includes professionals, paraprofessionals and lay people. It is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, school support staff, clergy, and community volunteers. In ASIST, sophisticated helping concepts are translated into generic language so that different types of caregivers can learn together. ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention training program in the world. Additional information is available online at http://www.livingworks.net

There is free onsite parking at Heart Beat Inc, but space is limited. A 1 day refresher is recommended after 3 years, and a complete course after 5 years.
