QUESTION:  If you needed to perform CPR, would you be prepared for the task?  What about the people closest to you–would they know what to do?
The 100+ participants who attended the Capital Region “Keep the Beat” CPR class at Lane Memorial Hospital can now answer, “YES!!”  They learned hands-on CPR skills as well as how to recognize and provide basic care for breathing and cardiac emergencies.
CENTRAL PRIVATE SCHOOL, the school with the highest percentage of students who attended “Keep the Beat,” won an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) for their school, a $2500 value.
This life-saving class was provided free of charge and the event was made possible by the following generous sponsors:  Cardiovascular Institute of the South, Medical Pharmacy, Zachary Kiwanis, Regional Eye Center, Blue Flash Express, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Subway, Zachary Business Journal, and Lane Cardiovascular Center.
