A cardiac arrest is when the heart stops beating. CPR and the use of a defibrillator before the ambulance arrives doubles the chance of survival.

Every second counts, if you don’t do something the chance of survival will decrease - every minute - by 10%.

We need more people like you to be aware of their nearest community defibrillator and be prepared to “give CPR a try and not just walk on by”, we need a nation of lifesavers, when the heart stops beating every second counts and in this type of situation any CPR is better than no CPR.

Why should I learn CPR?
Because CPR saves lives!

So what’s stopping YOU from doing CPR?

  • I may catch something from doing mouth to mouth!
    Do hands-only CPR then. It’s okay not to do mouth to mouth.
  • I may not do it correctly, I might get it wrong!
    Honestly, ANY CPR is better than NO CPR.
  • I’m worried I might hurt the person, break a rib or something!
    When a person has a cardiac arrest, they are dead! You cannot make the situation any worse. However, by doing CPR you will give the person a chance of survival.
But does CPR really work?
YES!

Please share this video and help us spread the word that we all need to learn how to do CPR.
