Cardiac Care at the heart of local Health Fair

The Ross Memorial Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation team and the Kawartha Lakes Paramedic Service are inviting the public to a Health Fair with a focus on heart health. The event will take place Wednesday, February 22nd between 11am and 2pm at the Ross Memorial Hospital in the main lobby.

· CPR demonstrations and hands-on practice

· Blood pressure testing using the new BP True (it takes six readings for accuracy)

· Understand the use of defibrillators in the community (and at home)

· Learn about the ‘Code Stemi’ program (certain symptoms result in patients’ transport directly to PRHC for immediate intervention by a cardiologist)

· Understand why you should always call 911 (taking the car is taking a risk)

· Get a Patient Medical Information card for your refrigerator (it could save your life)

· Enter a draw for a home CPR kit or a FitBit

· Meet your local heart-health team from the Ross Memorial, CKL Paramedics and the Heart & Stroke Foundation

This event is free and open to all. Parking in the Hospital’s long-term lot will be free during the Health Fair.
