Every year there are over 13,000 deaths in Ireland due to circulatory problems most of which are from coronary heart disease. Approximately 50% progress to cardiac arrest within 2 hours. For many victims it is what happens in the first few minutes following a heart attack that will decide their fate. Every two minutes someone, somewhere, has a heart attack. Part of our course includes training in the use of a Automated External Defibrillator.
