October is Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness month and we’ve launched a few exciting initiatives for 2015. Each year 40,000 Canadians die of SCA, but with the right tools and training, we can all work to reduce this number. If an AED and CPR are applied to an SCA, survival rates increase greatly.
This month, we’ve got a number of different events happening, all of which help raise awareness and increase SCA survival rates. We’re pleased to announce the launch of an updated workshop and an all new awareness event we are hosting at YVR!
“Do you have a minute to save a life?” Event at YVR
This October, Iridia Medical has decided to raise awareness for SCA with a the “Do you have a minute to Save a life?” event. We have partnered with London Drugs in the past to host this event in store, and now we will be working with YVR to host the event within the Vancouver Airport.
We will be at YVR at the following days in October:
- Friday October 2 10AM – 2PM
- Wednesday October 14 10AM – 2PM
- Wednesday October 21 10AM – 2PM
- Wednesday October 28 10AM – 2PM
Come visit us in front of the “The Jade Canoe” statue located in the International & USA Terminal.
We’ve just launched our new updated Cardiac Arrest Management Workshop
When it comes to responding to a cardiac emergency, we’ve developed a unique workshop specifically designed to train anyone on how to use an AED, and how to perform CPR. Our updated CAM Workshop features a more fun and relaxed environment to learn these essential skills. We’ve taken the workshop which has already trained thousands to a new level with updated equipment and activities for students.
Take a look at our page for the new CAM Workshop and contact Iridia for more information on booking a private group session.
Discounts on all AEDs in the month of October
As a way to celebrate SCA Awareness month, we are offering a 10% discount on all AEDs purchased in the month of October. This includes our brand new Cardiac Science Powerheart G5 AED.
