Hands only CPR

 Friday 6 January 2012

The Service is supporting a campaign by the British Heart Foundation to promote hands only CPR. Backed by Resuscitation Council UK, the campaign says that anyone who doesn’t have CPR training should now ignore the kiss of life in favour of “hard and fast” compressions in the centre of the chest. The campaign which includes a new TV advert featuring Hollywood hard man Vinnie Jones, will help show how simple Hands-only CPR can be, encouraging more people to help if somebody is in cardiac arrest.
