This Sunday, 16th October 2022, is the day that globally we raise awareness of Cardiac Arrest. This video shows four amazing survivors who had early CPR and defibrillation. The simple message is Check Call Compress Shock. By recognising a cardiac arrest, making the emergency call, starting CPR, and using an AED early, we can really make the difference between life and death. Watch the video below to learn more.
If you want to learn how to recognise cardiac arrest, make the call, perform CPR, and use an AED, you can learn on our First Aid courses.
The video was created by the Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Strategy Implementation Group and the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council.
