WORLD RESTART A HEART DAY
World Restart a Heart Day is a day aimed at teaching secondary school children CPR and delivered by South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. They have teamed up with the Resuscitation Council UK and The British Heart Foundation to provide hands-on CPR training to our pupils on Tuesday, 16th October 2018. During last year’s Restart a Heart Day, more than 5,000 youngsters were taught cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) across the South Central Ambulance Service operating area.
Currently in the UK, less than one (8.6%) in ten people survive a cardiac arrest. If we achieved the same survival rates of countries like Norway (25%), where CPR is taught in schools, an additional 100 lives could be saved each week - the equivalent of approximately 5,000 every year.
Fantastic news! Many congratulations. #inspiration #NCW2019 https://t.co/Ml1qzbMZFf 11:16 AM - 20 Feb 2019
The Colosseum could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, having an average audience of some 65,000; it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles for a short time as the hypogeum was filled in with mechanisms for other activities. https://t.co/9fADBTYgVs 10:09 AM - 20 Feb 2019
Ancient Romans traveled by land and sea. From earliest times the Romans displayed remarkable skill at building and engineering. They constructed bridges across the river Tiber, aqueducts to supply Rome with water, and sewers to drain the forum and keep the city healthy. https://t.co/vdrFUiSZdf 10:05 AM - 20 Feb 2019
