As part of our Healthy Living promotion, Pulse First Aid is pleased to sponsor Dodgeball Ottawa’s Dodgeball Tournament on February 8th 2014.
Dodgeball is no longer a child’s activity, it is one of the latest fitness trends that has been increasing in popularity each year. Dodgeball is a fast paced sport that gives you a full body workout. From jumping, dodging, throwing, catching, and sprinting this sport works a variety of muscle groups. With this in mind dodgeball can also be hard on the body (especially the shoulder and elbow) which is why it it vital to warm-up, stretch and have appropriate gear. This includes sportswear, arm braces/support and of course a fully stocked first aid kit. Pulse First Aid will be proving essential kits to each team with commonly needed items such as medical tape, bandaids, and a tensor bandage.

Ottawa Residents be warned – There is a group going door to door selling CPR Memberships. They claim you can take as many courses as you like within the membership period. Sounds good! Except that when you call to register their courses are full, cancelled, no instructor arrives, etc. This company has been scamming residents for over 3 years in Ottawa. DO NOT give them money at the door.

Pulse First Aid is an advocate of AED units and having the training to know what to do in the event of an emergency. We encourage businesses, sports facilities, and large community groups to start their own AED Program. Purchasing an AED unit and having it available on-site at your facility can significantly increase the chance of survival if an emergency were to occur. The chance of survival currently in Ottawa is approximately 5%, however sites with a public access defibrillator have almost a 70% save rate! A public access defibrillator (PAD) simply means having an AED that is in an accessible area of the facility so that it is available for anyone to use in the event of an emergency.
