Restart a Heart Day – Monday 16 October

Restart a Heart Day aims to raise awareness of the need for all people to learn CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death, with an estimated 15,000 people suffering a cardiac arrest in Australia every year. Receiving early CPR can increase the odds of surviving a cardiac arrest by a factor of five.

Paramedics Australasia is proud to support this initiative in Australia and New Zealand.
