The aims of Save a Life for Scot­land

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

Ev­ery week in Scot­land 70 peo­ple have a car­diac ar­rest, that’s enough to fill a dou­ble-decker bus.

A car­diac ar­rest hap­pens when the heart sud­denly stops pump­ing blood around the body.

Some­one who is hav­ing a car­diac ar­rest will sud­denly lose con­scious­ness and will stop breath­ing or stop breath­ing nor­mally. It can hap­pen to any­one at any­time. Do­ing CPR buys time for the am­bu­lance to ar­rive and can dou­ble the chances of some­one sur­viv­ing so Save a Life For Scot­land are ask­ing ev­ery­one in Scot­land to get CPR ready.

Car­diac ar­rest can hap­pen to any­one, but with CPR they are twice as likely to sur­vive.
