MORE than 200 shoppers were screened at the Netcare and Netcare 911 Save a life Project at the Cascades Lifestyle Centre on Saturday.

As organisations firmly rooted in South Africa, Netcare and Netcare 911 continuously invest in community initiatives. With approximately 92% of cardiac arrest victims dying before reaching the hospital, statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, and other emergency procedures, more lives could be saved.

Immediate CPR can double or even triple a victim’s chance of survival. Being passionate about care and optimising clinical outcomes, Netcare and Netcare 911 played a pivotal role in the lives of communities by educating them on advanced life support procedures such as, CPR and the Heimlich Manoeuver (choking), providing first line assistance in case of medical emergencies and promoting a health care lifestyle through talks and advice by emergency medical services professionals such as paramedics and health care practitioners.

The public was also provided with licence disk holders as well CPR key ring pouches.
