Would you know what to do in a life-threatening emergency?
Learning emergency life support skills (ELS) can help you to keep someone alive until professional help arrives. MHFS can help you to learn these skills through the Heartstart initiative.
The Heartstart programme includes skills such as:
- Assessing an unconscious patient
- Performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Dealing with choking
- Serious bleeding
- Helping someone that maybe having a heart attack
Heartstart is run by Men’s Health Forum Scotland and teaches you the simple skills needed in a life-threatening emergency and could held you to save the life of someone you love. The scheme offers you practical advice and encourages you to talk about resuscitation and saving lives.
Knowing what to do when someone has a cardiac arrest is important. If you can do CPR you can buy the time needed for professional help to arrive and save the life of your loved one. Being able to do CPR more than doubles the chances of survival.
Through Heartstart the MHFS aims to increase the number of people in the community that are able to help save a life.
