Today’s Program:     Heart Health

Karen introduced Dr. Barry Ramo MD FACC, cardiologist and Amanda Gabaldon, HeartStart project director..

Dr. Barry Ramo delivers medical news and information on Action 7 News -- everything from the latest treatments for diabetes to the best ways to lose weight.

In addition, Ramo is a staff cardiologist for the New Mexico Heart Institute, and holds medical professorships at the University of New Mexico and Duke University.

He also founded Project HeartStart, an effort to teach cardiopulmonary resuscitation to Albuquerque-area residents.

The New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation, a 501©3 nonprofit organization, was established in 1999 to help support educational and research initiatives of the New Mexico Heart Institute such as Project Heart Start. The programs are designed to enhance the cardiovascular health of people in New Mexico. 

The New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation is dedicated to supporting education and research to enhance heart health for all New Mexicans.

Project Heart Start (PHS) is dedicated to training all able individuals to perform compression-only CPR (COCPR) and to encourage and facilitate the placement and utilization of automated external defibrillators (AED). Read more.

A Project Heart Start training session lasts only about 45 minutes and is divided into watching a 12 minute video followed by a 15 minute skill session led by a trainer and a short demonstration of an AED ( Automated External Defibrillator). It is a non-certification class. The participant will learn to assess a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, call 911, correctly perform chest compressions, recognize the signs of a heart attack, save someone who is choking by performing  the Heimlich maneuver (abdominal thrusts) and how to use an AED.

At the end of their course, people should remember to:

Call 911, Perform 100 chest compression per minute hard and fast and use an AED if  one is available.

Following this presentation and talk by Dr. Ramo and Ms. Gabaldon , an extensive and informative Q&A session took place.

President Gail presented a packet of our gift cards to Amanda & Dr. Ramo in thanks for their time today.

And, for some reason, we forgot to have a thought for the day… (I had a thought once)
