Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a key determinant of survival following an Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest. This paper explores public knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards bystander CPR and defibrillation in circumstances of out of hospital cardiac arrest
- The proportion of respondents who reported being trained in CPR was 56%. However, 45% of those who had received training had been trained more than five years ago.
- The proportion trained to use a defibrillator was much lower, with only 23% of all respondents reporting that they had undergone training.
- Overall, confidence about giving someone CPR was not high, with 48% of all respondents stating they would be confident.
- 27% of people trained in CPR said they would not feel confident about administering CPR to someone if the situation arose.
