The British Heart Foundation’s ambition is to save lives…
- by increasing the survival rates from out of hospital cardiac arrests
- by increasing the rate of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- and create a Nation of Lifesavers
The BHF have devised a kit to help groups like us, Finningley Community Group, offer training to local residents who want to learn how to save a life.
If you are interested in becoming a Lifesaver then please get in touch with us using one of the methods below:
The CALL PUSH RESCUE Training Kit lets you:
- gain skills from a simple and interactive learning experience
- use an innovative ‘watch and learn’ model of CPR training
- practice with an instructional DVD using inflatable manikins
- in under 30 minutes you’ll learn essential life-saving skills.
Did you know that 80% of out of hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and are often witnessed by family or friends, only 20% occur in public places
The BHF have provided us with all the necessary equipment and our group is one of the first community groups in the UK supporting the British Heart Foundation in its mission to create a Nation of Lifesavers
We are also amongst the first community groups in the UK to adopt a new model of CPR training called CALL PUSH RESCUE. It’s an innovative ‘watch and learn’ model of CPR training. You practice along with an instructional DVD using inflatable manikins. You’ll learn life-saving skills in under 30mins and the cost is just a little of your time!
What is the difference between a Heart Attack and Cardiac Arrest?
A heart attack is different to a cardiac arrest. In very simple terms a heart attack is a problem with the heart’s blood supply.
It means there is a blood clot blocking a coronary artery and as a result part of the heart muscle has an inadequate blood supply.
The person needs to get to hospital as quickly as possible so the blood supply to the heart muscle can be restored.
A cardiac arrest is a catastrophic problem with the heart’s electrical system (heart rhythm). It means the heart has stopped beating and the person is not breathing or is not breathing normally.
The person will die within minutes without immediate help.
A heart attack is the most common cause of a cardiac arrest
