Did you know, National Statistics show that around an average 280 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school.  European data is estimated that there is approximately 60,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur every year in the UK.  In England alone, the Ambulance Service attempts resuscitation in around 30,000 cases, annually.  Approximately 80 percent of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests (OHCA) occur at Home; 20% will occur in public places.  This in mind, if immediate treatment is not given then, 90 to 95 percent of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will unfortunately die.

When a Defibrillator is used correctly and effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest occurring, their chance of survival increases from 6 percent to 74 percent.  Only 22 percent of people within the UK would be confident in performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on a stranger die every year from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), are you and/or your staff prepared to combat the fatality of SCA?  If you feel that you are not, then then this course provides a perfect opportunity to gain the experience and confidence needed to save the life of a Colleague, Customer or a Family Member.
