[Correspondence] World Restart a Heart initiative: all citizens of the world can save a life

Sudden cardiac arrest is the third leading cause of death in industrialised nations, resulting in more than 700 000 deaths in Europe and the USA annually.1 After cardiac arrest, the brain can survive for 3–5 min, which could be the minimum time that emergency medical services take to arrive. Consequently, the most important way to improve survival is the instigation of early bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).2 Bystander CPR increases survival by two to four times, which is much better than with any other intervention by emergency medical services or hospital staff.
