Saber realizar la resucitación cardiopulmonar y desfibrilación por profesionales sanitarios, salva vidasKnowing how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation and apply a defibrillator as healthcare professionals saves lives

It is estimated that each year there are more than 24,500 out-of-hospital cardiorespiratory arrests in Spain, one every 20 minutes on average, and they cause four times more deaths than traffic accidents. This high mortality rate can decrease if a series of actions are carried out, all of them important, that make up what is called the “Chain of Survival”.

In order to perform this immediate care, the international scientific community - International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and American Heart Association (AHA) - promote accredited training of both health and non-health personnel to improve the response in the care of victims of cardiorespiratory arrest..
