16 October 2020 is Restart a Heart Day!
CPR Training helps save lives. Why not sign up for a CPR training session?

Restart a Heart Day is a global initiative to raise awareness and educate the community about CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AEDs (automated external defibrillators) in the community.

Cardiac arrests have not stopped during the coronavirus pandemic. Time counts in the event of a cardiac arrest and for every minute that passes without intervention, the chance of survival decreases by 10%.

We want to change that by making sure that as many people as possible know that when someone collapses and stops breathing normally, it is important to quickly call 911, perform CPR and use a defibrillator as soon as one can be located. This gives mums, dads, sons, daughters and friends the best chance of surviving.

If you’re interested in learning life-saving CPR skills and having the confidence to use them St Matthews Medical School offers the American Heart Association accredited BLS/CPR for medical and non-medical people, covering CPR and AED skills, with or without first aid. A proportion of the proceeds of this training goes to the Cayman Heart Fund.

When: every month – next course dates are 24th and 31st October 2020 from 8:00am-1:00pm

Where: St Matthews Medical School, Clinical skill lab, Regatta complex, Leeward 4, Room 207

Contact: Mr. Lloyd Griffin, Tel: 345-945-3199 Ext: 164

Heart Warriors & Angels Beach Walk

Raising awareness of CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) Week

Four months of hard work and beyond went into Team Nolan’s 2nd Annual Heart Warriors & Angels Beach Walk in honor of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) Awareness week 2020 and in memory of an undoubtedly beautiful Heart Warrior.

Team Nolan Paediatric Programme is the Paediatric Arm of the Cayman Heart Fund and is a not-for profit that was inspired by the courage of Heart Hero baby Nolan Evans who lost his fight to a complex congenital heart disease known as Truncus Arteriosus in January 2018.

Team Nolan is very grateful to all of this year’s wonderful supporters including His Excellency Governor Martyn Roper, the Deputy Governor Honorable Franz Manderson, all of the Volunteers, sponsors and more than 250 participants in this year’s beach walk. All of this support culminated in this event being extremely successful in meeting all of Team Nolan’s targets.

The mission of Team Nolan is to raise local congenital heart disease awareness and to financially assist local families with CHD babies; through fundraising efforts such as the annual Heart Warriors & Angels Beach Walk and Kidfest events. In June 2019 Team Nolan donated the Nolan Evans Memorial Bench to Health City’s main lobby, which illustrates CHD awareness messages for all to see when passing through the hospital’s lobby.

Incubator Donated to Hospital Neonatal Unit
Providing necessary care to neonates and premature infants

On Monday March 2nd 2020, the Health Services Authority Maternity’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) held a special ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate their brand new Neonatal Transport Incubator donated by Team Nolan, the Pediatric arm of the Cayman Heart Fund. This state-of-the-art, high-performance incubator transports neonates safely, comfortably and with a minimum of stress. It can be taken nearly anywhere and still provide the warm, safe environment and quick access necessary for optimal neonate care.

Charmin Fennell, HSA Maturity Ward Nurse Manager, said, “We are truly grateful for Team Nolan for being amazing advocates for neonatal care here in the Cayman Islands. The New Transport Incubator in our NICU will bolster our current resources greatly and enables us to provide necessary care to our neonates and premature infants needing to be transported outside of HSA for care. It will also be utilized for intradepartmental transfers as well.”

Ailian Evans, CHF Board Member & Founder of Team Nolan, said, “I’m elated to see that our efforts are making such a difference in the Cayman community. This new neonatal transport incubator will benefit the most vulnerable patients, such as premature infants or infants with critical health issues and it will keep them safe while being transported to another healthcare facility for further treatment and/or care.”

Donations such as this important piece of medical equipment serve as  proof that Team Nolan’s fund raising initiatives are all very much worth the expended time and effort. This well needed incubator will help serve, not only babies with congenital heart disease, but other babies born prematurely or in distress.

Our AED Programme

AED Programme 

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can strike adults and children of any fitness level at any time, in any location. When a person collapses in SCA, every second is vital to save that person’s brain and heart. Performing immediate Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can give this person the best possible chance of survival!

Watch this video to see how these small portable AEDs can deliver an electric shock to a person’s heart to help it return to a normal beating rhythm. Performing swift CPR with an AED can literally bring a person back to life! This is why the Cayman Heart Fund is focusing its efforts on a program to place AED units in key places around the Cayman Islands where they can be quickly deployed in cases of cardiac arrest.

Eat smart. Move more. Be well.
