Sadly only 1 in 10 people survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Like a lot of other medical emergencies, the potential for saving a life is dependent upon time; the faster help can be obtained the better the chance of survival. That is why LIVES is supporting BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s 2017 Save a Life campaign to teach 10,000 people across the county CPR to create an army of life savers.
Anyone can save a life. Anyone can learn and perform CPR.
It’s simple to learn, yet can make the difference between life and death. When someone has a cardiac arrest, every minute without help reduces their chances of survival by 10%.
Cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at anytime, anywhere.
The earlier you give CPR to a person in cardiac arrest, the greater their chance of survival as this keeps oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and heart until defibrillation or other advanced care can restore normal heart function.
