All seven constituent councils of ILCOR are supporting a global initiative to increase awareness about the importance of bystander CPR and to also increase actual bystander CPR rates worldwide.
In 2021, the spotlight is on survivors! Using the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife, we are gathering stories of survivors who are still with us today thanks to bystander CPR and once more underline the vital importance of CPR in out-of-hospital settings.
By starting CPR and using a defibrillator before emergency services arrive, we can save up to 200 000 more lives every year. Make sure you know what to do – learn CPR!
