Basic Life Support Cardiac Arrest is when a person’s heart stops beating, many of these events are sudden and unexpected. In the UK, just 1 in 10 people will survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. In-hospital, the survival rates increase to around 4 in 10. Basic Life Support training provides users with the knowledge and skills to intervene should they witness a cardiac arrest, which may just save a life.

These key skills include:

•   Calling for help

•   CPR

•   AED and Defibrillation

•   Managing a person’s breathing (NOTE: amendments to this have been made since COVID-19 outbreak) 

Statistics are showing survival rates from cardiac arrest are dropping since the start of COVID-19 pandemic.
