World Restart a Heart Day - Are you ready to save a life?

3B Scientific GmbH

World Restart A Heart Day aims at increasing public awareness of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to save lives.

The annual World Restart A Heart Day event takes place on October 16th relating to cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid surrounding out-of-hospital heart attacks and the use of a defibrillator. Education and training in CPR is offered to the public along with what instructions on what to do in the incident of a heart attack.

As stated in The Lancet in August 2020, the frequency of bystander CPR is low in many countries all over the world, it is only about 40% likelihood. Nevertheless, bystander CPR can double the chance of survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). 3B Scientific’s products are designed to make CPR training more accessible and realistic, encouraging to take action and save lives.

3B Scientific is supporting the World Restart A Heart Day by offering a special promotion on the Basic Life Support Simulator BASICBilly+.

In 2019 during World Restart A Heart Day, 5.4 million people were trained in CPR. However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, instructors are rethinking the way CPR training is delivered.

Even in times of Covid-19, learning CPR is as important as always. Due to the increasing risk and fear of catching an infection, learning how to perform hands-only CPR may lower the hesitation of bystanders who fear getting too close to another person. Hands-only CPR can reduce the risk of catching an infection, and without intervention, the person will quickly die. BASICBilly+ supports the training in both conventional and "hands-only" CPR.

...for any response from the injured. If the injured is not responding and the breathing is absent or unnormal, CPR is needed.
