SADS UK Supports Restart A Heart Day
SADS UK is passionate about saving lives and promotes the importance of individuals learning CPR and how to use a defibrillator to help save lives. Since 1998 SADS UK has assisted thousands of schools and many communities to put defibrillators on their premises and delivered training on CPR and how to use a defibrillator.
Sadly cardiac arrests are still happening during the coronavirus pandemic. Currently if you have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK you have less than a one in ten chance of surviving. The aims of the Restart a Heart campaign is to improve these chances. SADS UK works with ambulance services around the country to help improve survival rates. SADS UK teaches CPR and the defibrillator all year round, the most powerful combination to save lives.
