THE FACTS

  • There are approximately 30,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests attended to by medical professionals every year, of which only 40% of victims receive bystander CPR%.
  • For each minute that goes by without defibrilation, the chances of surviving an out of hospital cardiac arrest decreases by 10%.
  • The current survival rate of cardiac arrests in the UK is 7-8%.  In comparison areas with a comprehensive strategy to reduce deaths by cardiac arrest have survival rates of 50%.

THE NEED

  • Recognising a cardiac arrest, calling 999, administering CPR, and defibrillation are crucial elements of the chain of survival.
  • Bystander CPR has shown to double a person’s chances of survival, while defibrillation within 3-5 minutes can increase survival rates to 50 – 70%.

WHAT WE’RE DOING IT ABOUT

  • At Magpas Air Ambulance, we want everyone to have the confidence and knowledge to intervene when someone is suffering a cardiac arrest, to provide them with CPR and to deploy a defibrillator in the vital minutes before the emergency services arrive.
  • To make this a reality, we have just launched our own community training session, Hearts Matter – Community CPR, which is available to schools, businesses, and community groups across Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire – FOR FREE
