CPR during cardiac arrest: someone’s life is in your hands

Cardiac arrest is the ultimate 911 emergency. The heart stops sending blood to the body and brain, either because it is beating too fast and too erratically, or because it has stopped beating altogether. Oxygen-starved brain cells start to die. Death occurs in minutes — unless a bystander takes matters into his or her hands and starts cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Testimonial
Thank you for taking the CPR level 4 update last week. Your session was not only very informative but great fun with lots of humour. After 32 years of CPR updates I didn't think there would a lot more to learn, how wrong I was. This would have to be the most enjoyable CPR session I have attended. Thank you again. I will look forward to the next update. - W Martin, Practice Nurse
