BACK IN A HEART BEAT’ SHORT FILM ON BYSTANDERS SAVING LIVES

This short film is a must see for everyone. Even with first aide training, knowing what to do when the moment comes to resuscitating and saving a life can be forgotten in panic. Using an AED (automated external defibrillator) is easy if you know where to find one and can follow instructions. This short film is a great reminder. Urban Lifesavers (not-for-profit) has launched a short film ‘Back in a Heart Beat’ to educate laypersons on why, when & how to apply an automated external defibrillator (AED) to save the life of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. ‘Back in Heart Beat’ film can be found on Urban Lifesavers YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7346e Urban Lifesavers is a registered charity dedicated to raising awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and educating the community on saving lives with early CPR & early defibrillation. Anyone can be an Urban Lifesaver and early defibrillation by bystanders before the arrival of paramedics gives the victim the greatest chance of survival.   Minutes matter to save a life. AEDs should be a commonplace as fire extinguishers and everyone should know how to use one. The vision is ‘No More Deaths from Cardiac Arrest’.
