Winona Health is offering free workshops Saturday, February 22nd to teach people how to help someone having sudden cardiac arrest.
Helen Bagshaw, a Winona Health ICU nurse, will be leading the workshop. She says people may be surprised to learn that saving someone's life doesn't require mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Bagshaw says hands only CPR is easy to learn, and you never know when you may have the opportunity to save a life.
Bagshaw will also cover information about what to do when someone is choking and how to use an automated external defibrillator
The workshop runs from 9:00 a.m. until about 4:00 p.m. and people can sign up for one of the half-hour workshops (limited to 12 people per session).
The workshops will be held at Winona Health, 855 Mankato Avenue, in the B.A. Miller Auditorium.
Workshops are free but space is limited. RSVP for a specific time is required by Thursday, February 20th by calling 457-4161 or online at winonahealth.org/cpr.
