All CPR standards are provided through the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) which provides the most effective CPR regulations and standards to all major Canadian and American providers. All courses also teach participants how to use automated external defibrillators (AED) which play a very effective and vital role in cardiac arrest rescues.
Trainees receive the latest Basic Life Support (BLS) training in rescuing victims or cardiac arrest. The 2010 BLS guidelines made by the American Heart Association highlight the updates in techniques and pathway when a person collapses and is immediately assumed to be a victim of cardiac arrest.

Did You Know?
Nosebleeds happen when the capillaries in the nose break and start to bleed. This can be caused by an injury to the nose, stress, hot temperature, or even by simply blowing your nose. Hypertension or sudden increase in blood pressure can also cause a nosebleed. Typical nosebleeds are harmless but if they occur after a head injury (like after a fall), they can be very dangerous. If the bleed is accompanies by thin and watery discharge, that is a sign of serious head trauma and that fluid from inside the skull is leaking out.
