Following my Cardiac Arrest in 2015, this has become my passion to pass on life-saving skills to others
My story really started in February 2015 with a visit to my local gym as I had done for many years. It was a normal morning routine in the gym on the treadmill. Without any warning I had a Cardiac Arrest in “full flight” and immediately fell unconscious. My heart had stopped beating and I had stopped breathing. It was one of those moments of being in the right place at the right time.
Without immediate intervention by gym staff to start Chest Compressions (CPR) and applying a defibrillator (AED) within minutes, my life would have been another unsuccessful statistic.
My passion is to pass on life-saving skills to others, and provide advice on the provision of defibrillators. Since the Cardiac Arrest I have trained over 1,000 people in Businesses and Communities.
I hold the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
Also, I am currently working alongside the London Ambulance Service and the Sussex Heart Charity, with a number of projects, as well as providing Life Support training sessions.
These skills need to be learnt today as tomorrow may be too late.
