Restart a Heart Day 16th October 2020

We want to raise awareness of the importance of knowing CPR when in the presence of someone needing help.

What is Restart a Heart Day

British Heart Foundation are the leaders in promoting the vital messaging of helping people understand the steps needed when someone is having a cardiac arrest and the impact this can have.

Knowing CPR, using a defibrillator and calling on the teams trained to take over, can quite literally be the difference between life and death.

Read on to hear what we have to say and discover how the fast actions of knowing how restart a heart has had on one of our patients.

The best chance of survival for a cardiac arrest recognises there is a chain of survival that involves dialling 999 for help, good CPR, using a defibrillator to shock the heart and excellent critical care to support the patient until they recover. Dr Matthew Wyse, WNDLR Air Ambulance
