Fewer than one in ten people in the UK survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. And every delay reduces a person’s chance of survival. A cardiac arrest is the ultimate medical emergency.

This British Heart Foundation CPR poster reinforces the memorable slogan: Call, Push, Rescue. It covers the following instructions, with illustrations:

  • Shake and shout. Check if the area is safe, if the person is responsive and shout for help.
  • Check for breathing. Irregular breathing or gasping is not normal.
  • Call 999 and send someone for a defibrillator. Continue CPR and follow the defibrillator’s instructions.
  • Give 30 chest compressions.
  • Give two rescue breaths.
  • Repeat until the emergency services take over.

CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a life-saving technique used in emergencies when someone’s heartbeat or breathing has stopped.

It involves chest compressions and rescue breaths to help circulate oxygenated blood to vital organs until medical help arrives.

In the hectic environment of a school, emergencies can occur unexpectedly. Whether it’s a student, staff member or visitor experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest, having CPR knowledge can make a significant difference in the outcome.

By displaying this British Heart Foundation CPR poster in corridors and sports halls, you’re creating a culture of preparedness and safety awareness.

The British Heart Foundation funds over £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them. Find out more about the British Heart Foundation. Follow on Twitter at @TheBHF. Find more CPR advice at bhf.org.uk/cpr.
