We have been working with our volunteers and community engagement team to develop a training course in Basic Life Support to be delivered to businesses both big and small. The focus on the course is around how to help save someone’s life when in cardiac arrest.
A cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops pumping blood around the body and causes someone to stop breathing and will collapse. Whilst in cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone’s chance of survival by 10%. This means anyone having cardiac arrest in the workplace would need your help, whether it is a colleague or a customer. Could your business deal with someone cardiac arrest?
Early intervention of CPR and defibrillation can drastically change the chances of survival. With immediate CPR and defibrillation within 3-5 minutes, chances of survival can increase survival by 50-70%.

The training includes both theory and practical elements. The key aspects are:
- How to recognise a cardiac arrest using a primary survey
- How to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- How to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
