Practise Hands-only CPR with our BHF PocketCPR app
The free app explains how to carry out Hands-only CPR on someone in cardiac arrest using hard and fast chest compressions. Also, it allows you to practise by making use of the accelerometer in your smartphone. It means your phone can:
- measure the rate and depth of compressions,
- telling you if you need to do the compressions faster or slower,
- or whether you should push harder or softer.
If someone’s had a cardiac arrest, they’ll be unconscious, not breathing or not breathing normally.
The person will die within minutes without immediate help. Act quickly and Call Push Rescue.
CALL 999 immediately.
PUSH hard and fast on the centre of the chest 30 times.
Give two RESCUE breaths.
Keep going until the emergency medical services arrive. If you’d rather not give rescue breaths then call 999 and deliver Hands-only CPR. That’s better than doing nothing.
