Every year in Spain there are 68,500 heart attacks. 30% of the people who suffer them die before receiving qualified health care. That is why it is essential to carry out a series of actions known as “Chain of Survival”:

  1. Early recognition of the symptoms of Cardiorespiratory arrest (PCR) and warning at 112.

  2. Early and adequate application of Basic Life Support (BLS) techniques.

  3. Early defibrillation.

  4.  Arrival of medical services.

We are aware of the importance of acting as soon as possible in the event of cardiorespiratory arrest. That is why this year we have decided to incorporate a Semiautomatic External Defibrillator (D.E.S.A) in our facilities. We have also carried out the Basic Life Support and Semi-automatic Defibrillation course, run by FormaSOSaragón, to learn the basic cardiopulmonary recovery techniques and how to act in an emergency situation of this nature, being able to carry out a first effective care until the arrival of health professionals.
