About Us

Life Support Ghana provides training in emergency preparedness to organizations such as corporate offices, hospitals, clinics, gyms, churches, government offices etc.

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anytime anywhere. If there are trained personnel on site, there is a much greater chance of survival. Often, whether someone will survive a medical emergency depends on what happens from the time the emergency occurs to when the ambulance arrives.

Life Support Ghana will train selected individuals in your organization to:
  • Recognize a medical emergency when one occurs on site
  • Know how to call for help
  • Determine if a collapsed person needs cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Perform high quality CPR
  • Perform high quality CPR
  • Give efficient rescue breaths
  • Properly use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), a machine which can shock a stopped heart back into normal rhythm (back to life)
  • Take care of the sick person until emergency help arrives
