"All citizens of the world can save a life!"
16th October 2019 marks the second annual World Restart a Heart (WRSAH) campaign.
The campaign promotes cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills raising awareness of life-saving training.
The UK Resuscitation Council is engaging all ambulance services in the United Kingdom to organise activities on and around the day including Yorkshire Ambulance Service which is organising CPR sessions down in a coal mine.
A number of schools, local community groups and voluntary services will also take part in this year's WRSAH performing CPR in iconic spots around the country.
Visit UK Resuscitation Council to find out what’s going on in your area.
What is CPR?
The abbreviation CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The term embraces all the procedures, from basic first aid to the most advanced medical interventions used to restore the breathing and circulation in someone whose heart and breathing have stopped.
Why is CPR so important?
New research from the UK Resuscitation Council and St John Ambulance shows only 31% of UK adults who haven't had professional training are likely to help someone experiencing cardiac arrest. That’s why it is so important everyone knows, as a bare minimum, the basics when it comes to this potentially life-saving skill set.
