After a sudden death of a close family friend, I became aware of the dangers of lacking knowledge in basic first aid methods. Literally knowing a few basic steps on what to do when someone is in a near death situation can help save a life, and put aside a family’s grief.
– Heart and circulatory diseases are responsible for over 161,000 deaths per year which is a quarter of all deaths in the UK!
-CPR is not a complex procedure, yet many people unfortunately do not know what it is/how to perform it and it can save a life
-Every year, around 30,000 people have cardiac arrests outside of the hospital environment
These are shocking, but unfortunately very realistic statistics, and you can help prevent a life being lost needlessly.
