Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) which is a form of First Aid; is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack, cardiac arrest, or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
First Aid is the help given to a sick or injured person until full medical treatment is available.
WHY LEARN CPR?
Emergencies such as cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time. Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors.
WHO CAN YOU SAVE WITH CPR?
The life you save with CPR is likely to be a loved one.
Four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home.
Statistically speaking, if called on to administer CPR in an emergency, the life you save is likely to be someone at home: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
WHY TAKE ACTION?
Failure to act in a cardiac emergency can lead to unnecessary deaths.
Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. Less than 8% of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.
