Monday March 19, 2018
7:30 – 9:00 pm
Guest Speaker: Michel Le May, BSc, MD
Topic: “Lucas 3 chest compression system for cardiac situations – now and in the future”
Dr. Le May received his Medical Degree in 1978 from the University of Ottawa. He completed his training in Internal Medicine at the University of Southern California Medical Centre and a fellowship in Cardiology at Emory University. Dr. Le May pioneered the concept of a dedicated STEMI room which has enabled paramedics to triage STEMI heart attack patients directly to the Heart Institute for primary PCI. As a champion for a regional STEMI program in Ottawa, his protocol has resulted in a 50 percent reduction in mortality in STEMI patients in the region.

We meet on the third Monday of each month, with the hope of helping others. We share experiences and aim to improve awareness and understanding of various heart conditions. Our objective is to reduce the fear, anxiety, and emotional stress that can often result from having a serious health problem. Our focus is on developing positive attitudes and enjoying life to the fullest. We pursue these objectives at our informal, monthly meetings with interesting and informative speaker as well as other heart-related activities. We welcome new members, their family and friends.
