The Canadian Red Cross and other agencies announced new guidelines this week that will become a part of first aid and CPR courses across the country. The new changes to first aid and CPR guidelines being implemented by a number of Canadian agencies are meant not just to save more lives, but to make the public more confident to intervene in a medical emergency, says a training specialist with St. Tyler is currently in Toronto for the first-ever national conference focused on first aid and resuscitation, where new recommendations to the Canadian First Aid and CPR Guidelines are being rolled out. These recommendations, which will become part of first aid and CPR courses across the country, were suggested and reviewed by the Red Cross, Heart and Stroke, St. According to a recent survey by Nielsen Consumer Insights for the Red Cross, only 50 per cent of Canadians feel confident helping in a medical emergency for a heart attack or other cardiac emergency, 48 per cent for a severe allergic reaction, 47 per cent for a concussion, 42 per cent for a stroke and 33 per cent for a psychotic episode. He also said that their training will also encourage people to use their phone to call 911 if they want some guidance while doing CPR or first aid.
