The CardiacSmart Lifesaver's Awards 2016
The Lifesaver's Ball compliments the #RESUS2016 Cardiac Arrest Conference. An opportunity for anyone interested in the treatment, impact of and survivability of OHCA and will be useful for operational ambulance staff, First Responders, Charities, Schools, Paramedic students, medics and anyone interested in AED's and their supply and placement in communities.
Out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is the biggest killer in the country. Around 60,000 occur annually, of which the Ambulance Services attempt to resuscitate 28,000. Across England, only 8.6% of these attempts to resuscitate results in the patient surviving to discharge from hospital - that’s 4% of all OHCA.
The CardiacSmart team of North West Ambulance Service promotes the hosting and use of AED's and training in CPR across North West communities and in all public places. To see more about the work we do, please take a look at the CardiacSmart web site, our CardiacSmart YouTube channel and our Twitter @CardiacSmart
