The next Restart a Heart Day will take place on 16 October 2021.
Cardiac arrests have not stopped during the coronavirus pandemic. If you have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK you have less than a one in ten chance of surviving.
We want to change that by making sure that as many people as possible know that when someone collapses and stops breathing normally, it is important to quickly call 999, perform hands-only CPR and use a defibrillator. This gives mums, dads, sons, daughters and friends the best chance of surviving.
Hands-only CPR reduces your risk of catching an infection, and without intervention it’s unlikely the person in cardiac arrest will survive.
Come along to our free Restart a Heart workshops running throughout the day in Antrim Castle Mall and practice CPR skills on a resuscitation manikin.
We’ll also be raising money for the British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland.
