What is the real citizen act???
Each of us can be confronted, at anytime and anywhere, with heart attack. Victim, close to a victim, witness: the course of our life will be changed.
Heart attack is not necessarily fatal. So our heart can return to beat again if we know how to take care of it in time, and its only chance, the presence of a witness who calls for help and knows how to perform a CPR (or Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) while waiting for their arrival.
Practicing a CPR first aid and using a defibrillator if it is available, is the key element to save many lives. Learning how to use a defibrillator (or AED) is simple, only some hours are sufficient to be well trained.
Everyone has the right to use an automatic external defibrillator. Nowadays, all the concerned parties in our society, are implicated in multiplying the presence of those simple and extremely effective devices in public places, markets, companies and even inside our houses.
We are all concerned, we all have the power to save lives!
