BHF & Heartbeat give cardiac arrest victims fighting chance of survival

Heartbeat Defib PNE

Heartbeat gains funding for Life-saving defibrillator at Preston North End FC

Heartbeat based at Preston North End is to become a community of lifesavers after it has been fitted with a public access defibrillator (PAD) and has been awarded a CPR training kit by the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

The Community Package contains the innovative kit which includes everything needed to learn CPR in half an hour.  Heartbeat plan to run training sessions in the local community meaning everyone can become potential lifesavers to book onto a course contact info@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk or telephone 01772 717147.

Defib 1

The defibrillator is a portable device that can be used by a member of the public to help restart the heart when someone has a cardiac arrest. This is when the heart stops pumping blood around the body and they lose consciousness almost at once. For every minute that passes without defibrillation and CPR, chances of survival decrease by around ten per cent. So it’s really important the people of Deepdale know both of these vital steps to help someone in an emergency.

Over 30,000 cardiac arrests happen out of hospital in the UK every year but currently less than one in ten survive. The BHF want to create a Nation of Lifesavers in a bid to boost these shocking survival rates.

The charity is campaigning for defibrillators to be made more accessible and recognisable to the public. Heartbeat want all young people to be taught CPR and PAD awareness at school.

Siân Percival-Edwards from Heartbeat said: “The defibrillator will be placed on the front of our building just behind the iconic Sir Tom Finney Statue at Preston North End FC meaning that local people have the best chance of survival should they suffer a cardiac arrest. We’re keen to get as many people as possible trained in CPR too. We’re now working to raise money for further defib’s to be placed around our community.”
heart in right place
Judy O’Sullivan, Assistant Programme Director at the BHF, said: “More than 30,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest outside of hospital every year but less than one in ten survive. More people could be saved if more defibrillators were available in public places and if more people felt confident using them and performing CPR. We are delighted that Heartbeat have joined the BHF’s Nation of Lifesavers campaign – by making another defibrillator available in a public location and teaching CPR locally. It could really be the difference between life and death. ”

When someone suffers a cardiac arrest their heart stops pumping blood around the body. They lose conscious almost at once and there are no signs of life. For every minute that passes without defibrillation and CPR, chances of survival decrease by around ten per cent. So it’s really important people in the Deepdale area know both of these vital steps to help someone in an emergency.

CONGRATULATIONS RANVIR!!

Well done Ranvir! What an amazing achievement!
Thank you so much!
We’re so proud of you, and can’t thank you enough.
Ranvir Singh is Heartbeat’s Patron and a few weeks ago commented…Hello – well this a bit weird. I’ve imagined doing the London Marathon for donkey’s years  from the comfort of my bed on that Sunday morning in April.. and I’d always said I’ll do one before I’m 40. So a bit like childbirth, I’ll do it once, but never again – and in the process I’d like to do some good for someone else, with a little help from my friends. My dad had 2 heart attacks and died when he was 42. I was 9. It’s gets harder to be without a father as I get older for some reason. Heartbeat is a charity in Preston where I grew up, and it cares for people with heart problems, giving them every chance of seeing their kids grow up. I wish it had been around 30 years ago. If you could give as little or as much as you feel you can, that would be really encouraging for me. Thank you xxx”
