How to Setup a Project Heart Start Training
Project Heart Start (PHS) is dedicated to saving the lives of victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest through education of all capable citizens to perform the new CPR called compression-only CPR (COCPR) and to encourage and facilitate the placement and proper utilization of automated external defibrillators (AED).
Non-certification PHS training sessions lasts only about 40 minutes and are divided into watching a 12 minute video, produced by KOAT and Dr. Barry Ramo, followed by a 15 minute skill session led by the facilitator and a short demonstration of an AED. (if you or your group needs to be CPR certified please refer to organizations like the American Heart Association or the Red Cross to get the training which is typically 4 hours long for CPR alone and will not be free)
Hosting a training requires an individual or group to lead the planning and coordination. The leader will be supported by the PHS Coordinator in all aspects of the planning process. The step-by-step planning guide is an easy outline to follow.
