Make time to see film
James Cant, director at the British Heart Foundation Scotland, said:
“When someone has a cardiac arrest their chances of survival decrease with every passing minute.
“After even a few minutes, if no-one has attempted CPR it is too late – but you can help.
“It’s vital that people know what to do in the event of a cardiac arrest.
“This includes calling 999 immediately, performing CPR and being able to access and use a defibrillator as soon as possible.
“This new film from the Scottish Government shows us that everyone should give CPR a go if someone nearby goes into cardiac arrest.
“We all have it in us to be life-savers and it could be the life of a loved one that you save, as most cardiac arrests occur in the home.
“I’d urge everyone to spend a couple of minutes watching this film and absorbing its message, as it could make the difference between life or death.”
