Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/19/2014 -- The Heart And Stroke Foundation of Canada has established that the teaching of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and training in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED) will save lives of all ages from the leading cause of death in the country today. The Heart And Stroke Foundation states, "Knowing how to respond to a cardiac emergency can increase a person's odds of survival and recovery in situations by 30% or more." The training to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, combined with the latest in first aid techniques is deemed even more important for parents and those who work with children." The website Kidshealth.org further reports, "Every parent should know how and when to administer CPR. CPR can save a child's life until advanced life support can be given by health care providers either on the scene or in an emergency room setting."
To meet this demand to train parents and teachers of children how to save lives in such an emergency, Synergy Employment Services offers Toronto first aid and CPR courses to the general public. Kapil Gupta, Spokesperson for Synergy describes their mission, "Synergy has been providing health care, safety and wellness solutions in Toronto since the year 2003.
