Save a Life for Scotland Goes Gaidhlig

These pupils are spreading the message of life-saving CPR on the Isle of Lewis and beyond!

Save a Life for Scotland Goes Gaidhlig

Ness & Shader Community First Responders along with Lionel school have produced this brilliant Gaidhlig Version of the Do You Know CPR video!

The pupils of Lionel School are proud to have their very own defibrillator and to have received Emergency Life Support training from Scottish Charity Lucky2BHere.  Thanks to Lucky2Bhere Eilean Siar there is now a defibrillator in every school in the Western Isles and every single pupil has the opportunity to learn the life saving skills as part of their curriculum.  The defibrillators are located outside the Schools, so they can be used both during term time and be available to the local community out with school hours too.

Lucky2Bhere Eilean Siar was set up in 2006 as a branch of the Skye-based charity that has trained thousands and placed defibrillators across Scotland.  When the Eilean Siar team started three years ago, there were seven AEDs in the Western Isles – now there are 123….and counting!

See the Lucky2BHere map for full details of defibrillators across Scotland and keep up to date with L2BH activities on Facebook @lucky2bhere

Well done to all involved! Watch the video here:

We hope you've enjoyed our #DebunkFridays series! We're ending the series with a classic moment from #theoffice where the team learns #CPR with a focus on incorrect hand placement during chest compressions. It’s the opposite of a proper CPR learning session but it is very amusing nonetheless. Full clip:

In this scene (see gif in comment section below), Michael is incorrectly performing CPR in the neck area. For proper chest compressions, the heel of one hand should be placed in the centre of the chest with the other hand on top. Interlock your fingers. Press down 5-6 cm at a rate of 100-120 compressions/min.

Welcome back to #DebunkFridays! A series where we examine representations of #CPR and #cardiacarrest in TV/film. Today we’ll be looking at #Arrow and the incorrect placement of defibrillator pads on Oliver Green.

Check out the clip in the comments section below.

In this scene, you can see one of the pads is incorrectly placed on Oliver's stomach area. Check out the graphic for the correct placement of defibrillator pads. Did you know that PADs (Public Access Defibrillators) also known as AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) will have visual instructions to guide you on pad placement should you ever need to use one.
