Dr. Kreyan Kasvalu is a Medical Doctor by profession. He is a certified instructor for the American Heart Association (AHA) and also the Resuscitation Council of South Africa (RCSA).

METS (Pty) Ltd was founded by Dr. Kasvalu with the goal of providing healthcare professionals and non-healthcare professionals training in Medical Emergency Courses. There are currently 7 Medical Emergency Courses on offer for non-healthcare professionals which fits into every category of our every day life.


After completing his internship in 2013, Kreyan spent time in the United Kingdom doing the UK Medical Licensing Board Exam (PLAB part 1 & 2). Upon returning to South Africa in late 2013, he joined the Enhancing Care Foundation (ECF) where he managed and oversaw the Early Childhood Development (ECD) Program. ECD assessed over 52 000 children across Gauteng in 2014 and 2015. He was also involved in Project MOLESWASA which looked into TB in the Gold mining industry and was funded by Aquity Innovations through the World Bank.

During his time at ECF, Kreyan identified the urgent need for Medical Emergency Training in life-threating situations and how these vitals skills were lacking amongst healthcare, and non-healthcare professionals in South Africa. Kreyan believes that South Africa is not in step with international resuscitation Automated External Defibrillator (AED) skills, the latter of which has become mandatory in first world emergency settings. As South Africans, he believes it crucial that we empower ourselves with up-to-date skills on emergency medical training and the use of an AED as this knowledge could save a person’s life. AEDs are present in shopping malls, airports, sporting stadiums and other public spaces. With such resources in place, it would be wise to have as many people skilled in its use so as to maximise its benefits. Early use of an AED in a resuscitation increases the chances of survival of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) exponentially.

METS provides courses for individuals to train on AED simulators, thus giving them confidence on how to react and what steps to take in a medical emergency. The knowledge and skill you gain from attending these courses could save somebody’s life.
