Sign up for a live demonstration with Muriel Dempsie followed by some hands-on practice of how to perform CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and use an AED (automated external defibrillator) which will mean you leave the show equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to potentially save a life.
When not running (or skipping) she works as a nurse lecturer. Cardiac care remains her passion and she delivers CPR/defibrillation training to friends and fellow runners overseas as she firmly believes everyone should know what to do in the event of being faced with a person in sudden cardiac arrest. She states ‘equipping every runner with the confidence and skills to save a life can only further enhance what is already a fantastic, positive community’.
A sudden cardiac arrest is a serious emergency and can happen at anytime. Bystanders must act quickly in order to improve the chance of survival. The skills required are quick to learn and easy to do.
