I came across this on the BBC and wanted to share it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-cornwall-40357224/cornwall-teenager-saves-dad-with-cpr-learnt-from-house
This is another great article which highlights the importance of knowing what to do in an emergency situation. CPR is vital, as you are taking over the role of the heart by pumping oxygenated blood around the body and to the brain to try and prevent damage.
These are skills that we hope no one should ever have to put in to practice. However, if you are faced with this situation it is important to act quickly, and with confidence.
If you would like to attend one of our first aid courses in High Wycombe or book an in-house course for us to come to your office or place of work, please get in touch.
