½ day course
Is your workplace prepared?
Did you know that following a cardiac arrest,every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a casualty’s chance of survival by 10%?
The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event related incident in an urban area is 11 minutes. Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers, and yet statistics show that most of the British public are unaware of the life-saving difference they can make by performing CPR and defibrillation. If a defibrillator is used within 1 minute of the casualty collapsing, the casualties survival rate increases to 90%
