PHECC Cardiac First Response (CFR)
It is estimated that at least 13 people die every day in Ireland from sudden cardiac arrest, totalling to over 5,000 deaths each year.
Cardiac arrest knows no place. It can happen anywhere, even in the workplace. This is why it is important to have someone qualified to provide cardiac first response (CFR) to any employee requiring treatment.
Medical experts say that cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can double and even triple the chance of survival of a person who suffered a cardiac arrest.
Recognising the importance of CPR and immediate treatment, the government has made it mandatory for companies to have a personnel trained to provide CFR.
iSafe offers the Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) Certified Cardiac First Response (CFR) training course. This programme takes approximately 4 hours to complete. It is designed to equip participants with the ability to provide proper, prompt and safe assistance to anyone who has suddenly collapsed.
