Quick! The person next to you just collapsed from cardiac arrest, or is not breathing due to a possible overdose, or is bleeding to death from a traumatic injury!
You have only 2 minutes to save a life! Do you know what to do?
MedStar crews responded to 1,659 cardiac arrest calls in the past 12 months – Only 603 (36%) of these patients received Bystander CPR, one of the greatest predictors of cardiac arrest survival.
In the past 12 months, MedStar crews responded to 873 patients suffering a potential overdose. Narcan, one of the most effective treatments for life-threatening overdose is available over the counter. Do YOU know how to get it, and administer it?
Major bleeding can lead to death in a matter of minutes. Knowledgeable bystanders can implement quick bleeding control techniques before EMS arrival.
MedStar is offering a free Hands Only CPR, Stop the Bleed and Narcan Administration class on Thursday, June 8th from 6p – 8p at our headquarters: 2900 Alta Mere Drive, Fort Worth.
