CPR and AED course Outcomes

In the UK there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests a year outside of hospital. Less than 10% of those victims survive to be discharged from hospital (British Heart Foundation).  In comparison, Norway has a survival rate around 25%.  Effective CPR can double the chances of survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest. 

This CPR and AED course is designed to effectively train candidates about both CPR and the use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs).   AEDs are also referred to as Public Access Defibrillators or PADs. This course will teach candidates how to recognise and respond to a severe life-threatening emergency until the Emergency Services personnel arrive, whether it be administering CPR or using a defibrillator.  

Incidents requiring CPR can happen anywhere and at any time. The first response to such an incident is the most important. CPR, given at the scene, can improve the chances of survival and recovery of a victim.  It is vital anyone who witnesses a cardiac arrest has the skills, ability and confidence to step in and help.  This CPR course will help support the development of those skills and with the aim of giving you the confidence you are making the correct choices at this critical time..
