It’s February and our thoughts may turn to love and romance with Valentine’s day this week. At First Response First Aid we are thinking about heart-health of a different kind, how to spot someone having a heart attack and what to do, but also how we can look after our hearts and the 7 things we can do to keep them healthy.
According to the British Heart Foundation, heart and circulatory disease causes 26% of all deaths in the UK; that’s nearly 160,000 deaths each year, an average of 435 people each day or one death every three minutes.
These 7 things help:-
The British Heart Foundation has some very useful booklets free on their website that focus on these areas (and more) with hints and tips, as well as success stories. https://www.bhf.org.uk/heart-health/preventing-heart-disease/10-minutes-to-change-your-life
So this February think about looking after your heart and those you love! Book onto a first aid course in your local area and learn about dealing with all types of emergency, but especially how to use a AED and do CPR. Make 2018 the year you learn how to save a life.
