Save A Life
We recently came across this video published by The American Heart Association (AHA) promoting hands-only CPR. It's a short 2 minute view promoting an important message in a humorously styled video.
Yes it is American focused but the message is still a valuable one for us all.
Sudden cardiac arrest, when the heart stops abruptly, is apparently the leading cause of death in the US. This video, linked to a campaign called 'Be Prepared To Save A Life', is trying to get the message across that bystanders witnessing someone collapse due to cardiac arrest could double their chance of survival by not only calling emergency services but also if they performed simple, hands-only CPR.
Trinity College Dublin released a recent news article on a similar topic - Irish People Slow to go to Hospital with Heart Attack Symptoms
Emergency Services number in Ireland is 999 or 112
Pocket First Aid & CPR
The AHA also provide a Pocket First Aid & CPR mobile application for your phone, promoted with an inspirational story of how a man survived 65 hours under rubble using this app during the Haiti crisis.
At such an inexpensive price anyone with a smartphone should consider installing this very handy app.
Available for iPhone and Android devices here - heart.org
We wish everyone a wonderful May.
In Good Health
