Project Heart Start CPR Training

Project Heart Start is dedicated to training all capable individuals in New Mexico in Hands-only CPR, how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), the common signs and symptoms of a heart attack, and how to help save the life of a choking victim.

Located at New Heart Fitness and Wellness Center

601 Lomas Blvd. NE 87102

Contact us to schedule a free training in these lifesaving skills for your School, Business, Neighborhood Association, Community Organization, or Educational Group.

This Project Heart Start training video was produced in 2010 by Dr. Barry W Ramo and KOAT (ABC) to teach New Mexicans four lifesaving skills. Since then, over 140,000 people have been trained!

Come to a FREE training to learn how to most effectively help save someone in an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest emergency!

Thanks to support from the NM Heart Institute Foundation and generous donors, Project Heart Start is able to provide training at no cost! Trainers will come to your business, school, or other organization to teach lifesaving skills everyone should learn to help increase the survival rate of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
