Latest First Aid and CPR Training

Programs and courses offered in Calgary meet the highest standards and requirements set by St Mark James. Course guidelines are provided through the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) which provides CPR standards for all major Canadian and American providers.  Check out this video that shows the latest CPR techniques as approved by CSA standards set in 2017 and 2020.

The instructor in the video is showing the latest standards in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). Here are some basic tips for the application of an AED.

  • When in doubt, put the AED on. The AED tracks the sinoatrial node of the heart which is the electrical impulse of the heart. The AED determines if the victim needs an electrical shock. The AED will not shock the victim if it will not benefit the patient.
  • The AED pads have an effective adhesive. The only major concern to placing the pads on an exposed chest is water/sweat. Ensure that the patient’s exposed chest is dry prior to application.
