Death occurs in minutes — unless a bystander takes matters into his or her hands and starts cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Testimonial
I recently booked to update my CPR certificate for work as a locum Practice Nurse in the Nelson- Tasman region, with Resus Nelson. At past updates I have attended with a resigned,'it has to be done' attitude, and was very pleasantly surprised  at this one, to find a confident, knowledgable instructor, who updated my rusty skills in a competent and enjoyable manner. I left feeling that I had learnt a few new skills that would not be easily forgotten, and that the certificate I received meant more than just the necessary two yearly paperwork. I recommend Natalie to anyone wishing to update their CPR skills. - Jenn Bolderson RN
