A significant number of victims of heart attacks could be saved if treatment was provided in time. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the procedure adopted following a cardiac arrest in order to maintain sufficient circulation to protect the vital organs, provides the means by which they can be kept alive until defibrillation can be given. The Working Group on Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was appointed to examine the arrangements for the provision of training, both the public and health service staff, in CPR techniques and to make recommendations about future CPR training in Scotland where the death rates from coronary heart disease are the highest in the world. This report sets out their findings and recommendations.
