The Ross Memorial Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation team and the Kawartha Lakes Paramedic Service invited the public to a Health Fair with a focus on heart health.

The event took 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)

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

· Learning about the ‘Code Stemi’ program (why do paramedics bring some patients to RMH and others to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre?)

· 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
