Think Emergency Services can help Everyone? Think again!
Our emergency services are absolutely awesome, but they need our help especially when it comes to SCA. Time is critical and bystander help is needed to save a victims life with good quality CPR and prompt Defibrillation until the ambulance arrives.
Don’t want to Break any Ribs with CPR? It’s OK if you do!
Good quality CPR means you need to PUSH HARD & FAST. 100 – 120 compressions per minute and pushing down a third of a persons chest until emergency services arrives or the Defibrillator tells you to take your hands off. Performing CPR means oxygenated blood is circulating and keeping vital organs like the brain alive.
Ribs are there to protect and may break during CPR but it’s ok! Id forgive you if it meant you saved my life.
