This week the Resuscitation Council (RCUK) has launched an innovative CPQR campaign, so that anyone with a mobile can quickly and easily become familiar with how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use a defibrillator.
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time – and currently, less than 1 in 10 people in the UK survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
The heart-shaped CPQR code shown in the image below holds the information people need to know to save a life. Just scan the CPQR code for the current guidance or click HERE.
This is timely as the CRCG is in the process of arranging further awareness training for residents on this very subject and use of our Community Defibrillator. Information about our defibrillator can be found HERE.
