June 1 – 7, 2009 marks the second annual National CPR/AED Awareness Week. As a trained professional you may know how to respond to cardiac emergencies but do your loved ones? The goal of this week is to promote the importance and provide CPR and automatic external defibrillator (AED) training. From infants to the elderly, thousands of lives are saved every year because someone took the time to learn how to perform these important lifesaving skills.
