Event Details

Here is how Project Heart Start will work:

 

1. The goal of Project Heart Start Day is to teach the public compression only CPR and what to do in an emergency. For the participant the program lasts only 40 minutes and is divided into watching a 12 minute video, produced by KOAT 7 and Dr. Barry Ramo, followed by a 15 minute skills session led by you, the facilitator.

2. On the day of the event, June 23, 2012 3 sessions will be offered: 8AM, 9AM and 10AM, with a back up session at 11AM if more people show. After participants view the video in the Commons Area of Hiroshi Miyamura HS they will be directed into the gym to stations manned by you, the CPR facilitators. At each station 2 CPR mannequins will be available for every 10 people.

3. We would like for you to teach the participants to do two things reflexively: when they come upon a person that has suddenly collapsed and is unresponsive: call 911 and perform chest compressions hard and fast. In addition we would like for you to teach them how to help a choking victim. You are encouraged to demonstrate these steps with a scenario and be sure that each participant gets a chance to practice assessing the victim, calling 911 and perform the compression- only CPR on the manikin. After the completion of the skill session participants will be directed toward an AED station in the lobby where they learn how AEDs are used as a critical link in survival for cardiac arrest.

4. On Saturday, June 23, 2012, the day of the event we ask that you arrive no later than 6:30am at Commons area of Hiroshi Miyamura HS(680 S. Boardman Ave.) for your orientation. Breakfast and a complimentary T-shirt will be provided for each facilitator. Following that you will be asked to report to the gym and then the program will start at 8AM. The event will end no later than 12 NOON. Nurses and EMTs are able to earn 4 hours of CE credits but will need to stay the entire 4 hours. More detailed information about that will be provided.

Prior to registering be sure to view the facilitator video at www.koat.com/heartstart

We look forward to seeing you at the first statewide NM Project Heart Start Day in GAllup on June 23rd. Please be there no later than 6:30a.m. We will provide breakfast and you will get your facilitators t-shirt.
