Stayin' alive -- delivering resuscitation messages to the public
Date:3/21/2013

Teaching bystander Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) strategically to the general public offers the greatest potential to make the biggest overall impact on survival in out of hospital cardiac arrests in Europe, reported a main session on Resuscitation Science at the European Society of Cardiology's EuroHeart Care Congress, which took place in Glasgow, 22 to 23 March, 2013.

"The reality is that four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home, and unless the public are trained in resuscitation many people die before emergency services get to them," said Mary Hannon. "The good news is that CPR is an important life saving technique that can be effectively taught to most people."

The European Resuscitation Council estimates that around 500,000 people suffer a sudden cardiac arrest every year in Europe. While bystander CPR increases survival rates by two to three times, it however is only delivered in one in five out of hospital cardiac arrests. Optimizing this rate, the European Resuscitation Council has estimated, could save 100,000 lives in Europe each year.

"We want to get the message across that anyone, whether First Aid trained or untrained can help someone in an emergency and that doing something is better than not doing anything at all," said Hannon.

It is estimated that a victim's chance of survival slips away by 7% to 10% each minute before CPR is started. "So it's vital not to procrastinate. The challenge is to persuade everyone to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in as quickly as possible," she said.

While in emergency situations everyone should be prepared to have a go, studies have suggested that people who have formally learnt CPR are ten times more likely to respond than those who have not. And training makes a big difference to survival. Statistics from the American Heart Foundation show that in cities such as Seattle and Washington where CPR training is widespread, the survival rate for cardiac arrest is ar
