About our CPR and Defibrillator Courses. 

Every year approximately 12,000 people in the East of England suffer a cardiac arrest whilst at home, work or play. Currently only about 60% of these receive any form of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before the arrival of the ambulance service and less than 5% have a defibrillator deployed.

Early bystander CPR can treble the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest. Coupled with the early use of a defibrillator this can improve survival rates from 2% to around 40-70%.

East Anglian Air Ambulance aims to save more lives and minimise the impact of trauma and medical emergencies in the community. To achieve this, we are delivering CPR and defibrillator awareness training to community organisations and workplaces across East Anglia.
