Although the initiative was unfortunately discontinued due to monetary constraints, she said, some schools have continued, and there are future plans to incorporate CPR into the school curriculum.

Future moves to establish a registry of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) in Southern Ireland, she said, should further increase survival. "Once we know exactly where defibrillators are based we hope to link them to the ambulance services so that lay rescuers can be contacted to take them directly to the victim," said Hannon.

In the session Dr Lettie Rawlins gave an overview of the research she undertook at Coventry University, while a medical student, using music as a prompt to help people achieve the correct tempo of chest compressions.

"It's really important to use the correct amount of force to compress the heart sufficiently to push the blood out, and at the same time you need the correct rate of compressions to enable sufficient blood to reach the brain," said Rawlins, now a junior doctor at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon, UK.

"It's quite difficult to get the right rate even if someone shows you, and really easy to deskill if you haven't practiced for a while. The idea behind using popular music is that songs stay longer in your head," she said.
