ACT Foundation Paves Way for AED Education in Canadian Schools

April 27, 2007 – OTTAWA, ON – The Advanced Coronary Treatment (ACT) Foundation of Canada is paving the way for defibrillator education in Canadian schools through its pilot project in Ottawa

ACT recently launched the ACT High School Defibrillator Pilot Project—the first of its kind in Canada –  when nearly 20 teachers from four Ottawa high schools were trained to teach their students how to save lives with a defibrillator.

The goal of the pilot is to expand students’ CPR training, increasing their ability to respond to cardiac emergencies in public places. Research shows that when early citizen CPR is combined with early defibrillation, the rate of survival for a person experiencing a cardiac arrest almost doubles.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
