Resuscitation is easy. Everybody, even kids can do it. Save a life with 100-per resuscitation!

Thomas Zeltner Former Secretary of Health of Switzerland and Special Envoy of the World Health Organization (WHO) A cardiac arrest is a life-threatening situation and responsible for more than 2,000 deaths every day in the U. S. and Europe. Sudden cardiac arrest can hit anybody at any time. The person affected immediately loses consciousness and stops breathing normally or stops breathing altogether. Survival is unlikely unless chest compression begins within 5 minutes after cardiac arrest.

And now it is your turn! Already simple actions can help to survive a cardiac arrest. Anyone can learn these actions, even young students. A cardiac arrest can occur anywhere at any time. You can save the life of a family member, a friend or someone you run across, just by remembering Check, Call and Compress (as explained on this website) and start resuscitation. Do you know that immediate cardiac massage doubles or trebles the chances of survival?

Would it be great living in a society in which it is naturally like sticking a plaster, to perform resuscitation? We can achieve this with your support, if already kids save lives!

Therefore, the aim of the campaign “Kids save lives” is to introduce resuscitation teaching in the curriculum of schools worldwide. Can you imagine how exciting it is to learn how to revive and in which way even simple measures can help to save a human life?

Jointly with my colleagues at the Patient Safety Program of the World Health Organization (WHO), I am convinced that you will share our enthusiasm and therefore support the campaign “Kids save lives”:

I believe in you. I believe kids save lives!

On this website we - the anesthetists and anesthesiologists - provide simple steps of resuscitation and give practical guidance for everyone.

UP TO THREE TIMES HIGHER CHANCES OF SURVIVAL

Sudden cardiac arrest can affect anybody at any time. The person affected immediately loses consciousness and stops breathing normally or stops breathing altogether.
Survival is unlikely unless cardiac massage begins within 5 minutes of cardiac arrest. The earlier you start, the better. And viceversa: immediate cardiac massage doubles or trebles the chances of survival.

Resuscitation is easy.

Everybody, even kids can do it.

Save a life with 100-per resuscitation!
