Basic Life Support
Max Persons: 10 Duration: 1 Day
Every year in England, 30,000 people suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest ("OHCA"), and less than 10% survive (Hawkes et al, 2017). Currently, only between 30 and 40% of those who suffer an OHCA will receive cardiopulomary resuscitation ("CPR") from a bystander, but if more people receive CPR then the rate of survival could be 4× higher! (British Heart Foundation, 2017). This course will give you the skills to successfully resuscitate a person suffering an OHCA, and it will give you the confidence to save a life!
