Citizen CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
The Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council, in an effort to encourage bystander CPR or CPR by untrained persons, where a person had collapsed, ran a Television Advertising campaign to promote Citizen CPR. Please see below.
If an adult has suddenly collapsed, is not breathing normally and is unresponsive, they maybe in Cardiac Arrest. There is no time to lose. Even if you are untrained your actions can help.
There are two simple actions that you can do to help save their life.
- Call 999 or 112
- Push hard and fast in the centre of their chest about 100 – 120 times per minute until the ambulance service arrives.
