Save A Life Cymru's "Touch Someone’s Life" campaign sets out to encourage everybody in Wales to learn CPR skills so that they are confident of the steps they need to take when a person has a cardiac arrest. This is an emergency, but by using some basic knowledge and skills, you can increase your loved one’s chance of surviving a cardiac arrest.
Currently only 30-40% of people who have a cardiac arrest in the home or in the wider community will receive CPR by a bystander. CPR and defibrillation can treble their chance of survival.
CPR can be lifesaving and must be started immediately.
If a sudden cardiac arrest occurs to your loved one at home – their only chance of survival could be YOU.
Knowing how to do CPR and how to use a defibrillator can help you act more effectively in what can be a very stressful situation.
Take a few minutes to learn or refresh your CPR skills- they could be some of the most important minutes you can spend, which could help you save a precious life.
Please encourage all your family and friends to do the same.
Calon Defibrillators is delighted to be a part of this nationwide initiative to teach lifesaving skills to communities in Wales. Find a CPR training session near you.
