First Aid & CPR
Cardiopulmonary disease is still the number one cause of death in Ireland. Knowing how to respond in the event of a heart attack, cardiac arrest or stroke are just some of the topics we cover in our first aid/CPR programs. HealthCo is an Irish Heart Foundation & Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council approved training site.
Recognition of a cardiac arrest is the first link in the chain of survival. Making a 999 call can be daunting. However the dispatcher will guide you on exactly what to do.
