Why 30 compressions instead of 15? – the evolution of CPR
26/11/18

Over 30,000 people in the UK experience sudden cardiac arrest in the community every year. In the United States the figure is 383,000.

A British Heart Foundation survey from 2015, conducted by the University of Warwick, highlighted that fewer than half of bystanders would attempt potentially-life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Only 37% of respondents reported that they would feel “confident” to deliver immediate CPR. This...
