Heartstart Discovery courses

Heartstart Discovery coursesHeartstart is continuing to run free two-hour training sessions in emergency life support for members of the public in Tayside throughout February.

Courses are free-of-charge and no medical knowledge is required in order to undertake one. It only takes two hours to learn the skills which may save a life and it is very likely that the person you help may be a family member or someone close to you.

The sessions cover:

  • caring for an unconscious person who is breathing
  • caring for an unconscious person who is not breathing and performing CPR
  • how to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and how to deal with it
  • helping someone who is choking
  • helping someone who is bleeding badly
  • awareness of defibrillators

Places are available during February

Wednesday, 19 February             7 – 9pm                            Dundee

Saturday, 29 February                 10am-12pm                      Perth
