Guidance from the Resuscitation Council

Dentists

The Resuscitation Council UK Quality standards state that “Primary dental care providers, general dental practitioners and all other dental healthcare professionals should undergo training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) including basic airway management and the use of an AED“.

General Practise

The UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines state that “All practices should acquire an AED” as part of their cardiopulmonary resuscitation guidance for clinical practice. Certification and entry onto the GMC GP register includes requirements to demonstrate competence in Automated External Defibrillation (AED), Cardio pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), and out of hours care. We offer a convenient and effective way to ensure that your staff are fully trained and up-to-date with the use and application of your practice AED by instructors who are dedicated to offering the best training to GP practices in the UK.

CPR Statistics

CPR can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival with more that 85 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home – not a hospital. Many victims do not have a history of heart disease and appear healthy. Fewer than eight percent of those who suffer a cardiac arrest survive.

Being able to provide appropriate care quickly in an emergency situation can help reduce a patient’s recovery time and can also prevent them from having a temporary or long term disability. As a bystander, you benefit from learning how to remain calm and make informed decisions in an emergency situation.
