CPR for schoolchildren

The Mail Online reported on a voluntary programme training children in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), led by a doctor from Guy’s and St Thomas’.

 

Some 30,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest in the UK every year, and fewer than one in seven survive.

 

Consultant anaesthetist, Dr Ada Ezihe-Ejiofor, says: “The Norwegians have a survival rate of one in four because they have been teaching CPR in schools since 1961. At school we have their attention, they are the right age.”
