A cardiac arrest can affect anyone at any given time or place. The UK survival rates of a cardiac arrest lag behind other developed countries, however, a cardiac arrest is reversible in most cases if treatment is provided right way. It is therefore important to know what to do if a person suffers a cardiac arrest in order to reduce the number of deaths that occur as a result.

It is vital to take action immediately as every second counts for the victim and it is important to limit the time between collapse and treatment in order to increase their chance of survival. We explore the steps that you can take to help save a person’s life if you witness anyone experiencing a cardiac arrest.

For many people, they spend more time at work than they do at home; for full-time workers, in excess of 30 hours a week is spent at work. That’s more than 100 hours a month!
