Project Heart

Sudden cardiac arrest usually strikes without any warning and can be life-threatening if help is not rendered promptly. With statistics indicating that approximately 7 out of 10 cardiac arrest cases occur in residential areas, equipping Singaporeans with lifesaving skills can potentially increase the chances of survival for victims who suffer from an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.
Singapore Heart Foundation’s annual Project Heart event aims to empower Singaporeans with the essential knowledge and skills in performing quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use of the automated external defibrillator (AED) safely.

Event Objectives

  • To equip participants with the necessary lifesaving skills and confidence to respond during cardiac emergencies
  • To equip participants with the right technique to perform quality chest compressions

Purpose of Assessment in the CPR+AED Certification Training

  • Certification (valid for 2 years)
  • Ability to determine unresponsive casualty and activate the emergency medical system (EMS)
  • Ability to identify vital signs of a casualty and recognise the need for CPR and AED
  • Ability to perform quality CPR and preserve the life of the casualty
  • Ability to use an AED safely and correctly
  • Ability to provide the paramedics with important information
