As part of the annual Restart A Heart Day, Staffordshire University is hosting a FREE CPR Training event at the Centre for Health Innovation. 15 slots are available for staff, students and the general public on each session.

Restart A Heart Day raises awareness about cardiac arrest and helps people to learn CPR, giving them lifesaving skills and the confidence to use them.

Your interactive 2.5 hour session will include:

  • Basic life support
  • Choking
  • Use of AED (automated external defibrillator)
  • Paediatric life support

These sessions will train you in how to perform CPR, an emergency lifesaving procedure, performed when the heart stops beating. Each year over 30,000 people have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK, with less than one in ten surviving - giving CPR and using a defibrillator can more than double someone’s chance of survival. Sessions will include an introductory talk and practical sessions allowing delegates to safely practice adult CPR with our team.

Why you should learn CPR:

  • Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops pumping blood around the body and causes a person to collapse and stop breathing normally.
  • Survival rates from out of hospital cardiac arrest remain stubbornly low in the UK, with fewer than one in ten people surviving. If CPR were more widely taught, thousands of lives could be saved every year. (Resuscitation to Recovery)
  • Around 80% of cardiac arrests happen in the home. Learning CPR guarantees that you have the skills to help those around you, including in the home.
