Did you know that with every Silver or Gold Defibrillator package we send out to schools, that as part of our charity aims we offer FREE Basic Life Support Skill sessions to pupils?
Creating awareness of sudden cardiac arrest is important to us and having the opportunity to offer these life saving skills to our next generation of adults can have a positive effect, make a real difference and increase survival rates of sudden cardiac arrest from 10% to over 74% when good CPR skills and the use of a defibrillator are used.
Recently one of Hand on Hearts trainers visited Mottram St Andrew Primary Academy who have just received their school defibrillator to undertake some training with year 4 pupils. We are delighted to say that the children all enjoyed their Basic Life Support sessions courtesy of Hand on Heart trainer Andrea.
From the photo attached, it looks like they all had fun!
