"They literally brought me back from death, and that was because of the Heart Start program”

Project Heart Start is dedicated to saving the lives of victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest through education of all capable citizens to perform compression-only CPR and to encourage and facilitate the placement and proper utilization of automated external defibrillators (AED).

– Barry W. Ramo, MD, FACC, Director of Project Heart Start

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). We hope to make New Mexico a healthier place to live.

Participants 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 )
  • use an AED

I WOULD LIKE TO

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Project Heart Start depends largely on volunteers to fulfill its mission to train every able person in New Mexico. You can volunteer to help with an event, become a champion and organize a training at your company or club, or you can become a facilitator and teach in the community.

I WOULD LIKE TO

TRAIN MY ORGANIZATION

The simple PHS training can be presented at your business, organization, club or school and only takes about 45 minutes. It is easy to organize and, by training your group, you are making New Mexico a safer place to  live.

I WOULD LIKE TO

DONATE

Sudden Cardiac Arrest kills 400,000 people annually, 9,000 of them children under 18. Make your community safer by supporting Project Heart Start with a donation.  Project Heart Start depends on funding from donors like you to fulfill its mission to teach all able New Mexicans CPR and 3 other life-saving skills.
