SADS UK delivers Lifesaving Initiative to Year 8 Pupils

July 13, 2022

The founders of SADS UK, Anne Jolly MBE and John Jolly MBE, Paramedics Zaki Manan and John Stein and Amy Telfer Intensive Care Nurse participated in teaching the pupils.  A PowerPoint presentation was given to explain how to save a life if they should witness or be called to a cardiac arrest incident. This was followed by a hands-on teaching of CPR and using the defibrillator.  The aim of the teaching is that every child recognises if a person is in cardiac arrest and is be able to provide chest compressions and use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Anne Jolly MBE, Founder of SADS UK says:  
“CPR being taught in schools makes students more confident is using this lifesaving skill if they should witness, or be called to help in a cardiac arrest emergency. Grays Convent High School and many other schools now have defibrillators on their premises and it’s important that children and staff feel confident in using the life-saving equipment.”
