Make time to see film

Hamilton Advertiser - - INFO..INFO..INFO -

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.”
