Frequently Asked Questions

Hands only CPR has been shown to be as effective at saving lives in cardiac arrest as traditional CPR with rescue breathing. A bystander is more likely to initiate chest compressions if they don’t feel obliged to perform mouth-to-mouth breathing. Hands only CPR is an easier skill to teach , learn and maintain. See the youtube video posts on this page.

Any community group, school, business or other interested organisations can arrange teaching sessions. You just need to organise a space, a time and a group of at least 10 participants (bigger groups help us achieve teaching coverage more efficiently). Any teaching staff engaging schools will have had Working With Children Checks.

We don’t offer any certification just a brief (around 30 mins) intervention to teach cardiac arrest recognition, hands only CPR and AED usage. We want to keep our sessions brief, accessible, simple and empowering.

The service is free.
