Emergencies happen. On ordinary days, life can change in the beat of a heartbeat, and teams working in Primary Care setting such as General Practices, Dental Surgeries and Pharmacies can find themselves in a life threatening emergency.
The Resuscitation Council UK state that:
- All healthcare professionals who work in the community may be required to resuscitate a victim of cardiopulmonary arrest.
- All members of the Primary Health Care Team who have contact with patients should be trained and equipped, to a level appropriate for their expected role, to resuscitate patients who suffer cardiopulmonary arrest in the community.
- The minimum standard should be proficiency in Basic Life Support
