Each year in Britain around 30,000 people are struck by sudden cardiac arrest outside of hospital environments. If victims aren’t treated properly, more often than not, cardiac arrests are fatal.
Given properly and immediately to sudden cardiac arrest victims, CPR can save lives. Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a victim’s survival rate by 7 to 10 per cent and without immediate treatment, 90-95 per cent of cardiac arrests prove fatal. If an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is used by a qualified person within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival rates jump from 6 per cent to 74 per cent. This is why AEDs are becoming increasingly common in public and work places.
This course doesn’t only teach how to perform proper CPR and how to use an AED but it also includes vital training in techniques to deal with resuscitation and choking.
