Restart A Heart: CPR Training

Greater Manchester Fire Service visited the school to teach the children how to perform CPR on a casualty.

This is part of the 'Restart A Heart' school training program.

The children had a great time and learned valuable life saving skills.

British Heart Foundation - Vinnie Jones' hard and fast Hands-only CPR

Vinnie Jones shows how hard and fast Hands-only CPR to Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees can help save the life of someone who has had a cardiac arrest. The Hollywood hardman is starring in a British Heart Foundation TV advert urging more people to carry out CPR in a medical emergency.

How to do Hands-only CPR

When somebody collapses in front of you, what do you do?

  1. Check the person over. If they are not responsive and not breathing, then their heart has stopped working and they are having a cardiac arrest.

  2. Now, call 999. Then you do Hands-only CPR.
  3. Lock your fingers together, knuckles up. Then push down, right on the sovereign. Push down five or six centimetres. That’s about two inches. Push hard and fast about two times a second, like to the beat of Stayin’ Alive. Don’t worry about hurting someone. A cracked rib can be mended – just concentrate on saving a life.
  4. Keep this up until the ambulance arrives.

So don’t forget. Check him over. Call 999. Push hard and fast to Stayin’ Alive. It works.

Hands-only CPR. It’s not as hard as it looks.
