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.
Here’s where to find LIVES teaching CPR. Keep checking back as we’ll continually add dates as demand increases. If you have a group of people ready to learn CPR, get in touch as we’re more than happy to bring a trainer to you
We will be running sessions throughout the year in your community throughout Lincolnshire so look out for details. If you are happy to host a CPR event in your business or community, please get in touch – email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01507 525 999
If you’ve had a CPR event in your community and want to be counted in the 10,000 lifesavers, please add your totals to the following form – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LIVESCPR
