CPR training is conducted on our state-of-the-art Laerdal Recusci Anne CPR manikin.

Why is CPR so important?

A study done in Seattle, Washington clearly shows the importance of knowing how to perform CPR. The study included 500 cardiac arrest victims. The results showed that if the victim received CPR within four (4) minutes and then advanced life-support within 8 minutes, the patient had over a 50% chance of returning back to a regular life. On the other hand, when CPR was not performed within four minutes and advanced life-support was delayed by more than 8 minutes, the patient had only a 5% chance of leaving the hospital (Source: PADI MFA-I Manual).

This important study showed that initiating CPR within the first 4 minutes is a key component in improving a person's chance of survival by almost 50%.
