[Correspondence] Training children in cardiopulmonary resuscitation worldwide

In Europe and the USA, 700 000 people die after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and unsuccessful cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) every year,1 about 2000 deaths per day. These estimates apply to many other parts of the world. This cause of death is probably the third most common cause of death in developed countries, after all cancers combined and other cardiovascular causes.1 When professional emergency medical services arrive after cardiac arrest—which can be after 8–12 min or more—the brain has already started to die.
