Saint-Orens-de-Gameville. First aid: training to save lives



Because first aid gestures increase the chances of survival in the event of a cardiac arrest by 50%, it is important to know how to use a defibrillator to maximize the chances of survival for a spouse, friend, neighbour. or a passing person.

This is why the city of Saint-Orens is offering a new free training session in the use of defibrillators on Tuesday May 9 at 6 p.m. at the municipal technical center (10 rue du Négoce).

Automatic defibrillators are medical devices that help resuscitate victims of cardiac arrest. Anyone, even non-doctor, and regardless of age, can use them. Voice assistance guides the user step by step, from cardiac massage to placement of electrodes. It is the defibrillator that makes the diagnosis and decides whether or not to shock. If you witness a cardiac arrest, consider initiating the “chain of survival”: call the emergency services (15, 18 or 112), cardiac massage, defibrillation, until medical treatment is provided. Free training accessible from 14 years old. Registration with Gautier Lopez on 05 61 14 80 00 or by email: [email protected] May 9 at the municipal technical center (10 rue du Négoce).
