When someone has a cardiac arrest, it is vital that they receive CPR and defibrillation as quickly as possible. The quicker they receive this care, the greater their chances of survival. You can learn how to give CPR and more about using a defibrillator from the British Heart Foundation, St John’s Ambulance and the Resuscitation Council UK websites.
If you come across someone who is unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally, they’re in cardiac arrest. The most important thing is to call 999 and start CPR to keep the blood flowing to the brain and around the body. After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone’s chance of survival by 10 per cent.
If you’re on your own, don’t stop performing CPR to go and get a defibrillator. If it’s possible, send someone else to find one. When you call 999, the operator can tell you if there’s a public access defibrillator nearby.
