Did you know?

  • ‘A blocked airway can kill someone in three to four minutes, but it can take more than eight minutes for an ambulance to arrive.’
  • ‘New research shows just 5% of adults have the skills and confidence to provide first aid in emergency situations.’
  • ‘59% of deaths from injuries would have been preventable had first aid been given before the emergency services arrived.’
  • In the UK fewer than 10% of all the people in whom a resuscitation attempt is made outside hospital survive.
  • ‘With no compressions, the 90% confidence of successful defibrillation is reached at 6 minutes and the median time limit for success is 9.5 minutes. However, with pre-shock chest compressions, the modeled data suggest a 90% success rate at 10 minutes and a 50% rate at 14 minutes.’
  • ‘We estimate that about 1,700 lives are saved in the UK per year by bystanders using an AED.’
  • ‘Nearly 45 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survived when bystander CPR was administered.’
