“All citizens of the world can save a life!”
The 16th October 2019 is once again World Restart a Heart (WRAH) day with events taking place all around the world to promote life saving CPR skills.
The UK Resuscitation Council is engaging all ambulance services in the United Kingdom to organise activities on and around the day. The Yorkshire Ambulance services are 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 World Restart a Heart. CPR will be performed in iconic spots around the country.
Visit UK Resuscitation Council for more details on what’s going on in your area.
WHAT IS CPR?
The letters CPR stand for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The term embraces all the procedures, from basic first aid to the most advanced medical interventions that can be used to restore the breathing and circulation in someone whose heart and breathing have stopped.
WHY IS CPR SO IMPORTANT?
New research from the Resuscitation Council (UK) and St John Ambulance for Restart a Heart day shows that only 31% of UK adults who haven't had professional training are likely to help someone in a cardiac arrest. That’s why it is so important that everyone knows, as a bare minimum, the basics when it comes to this potentially life-saving skill set.
