Asia’s first CPR self-learning kiosk
Singapore Heart Foundation to launch Asia’s first ever hands-only CPR self-learning kiosk to members of the public

With every minute that goes by after a cardiac arrest, the victim’s chance of survival decreases by 7 to 10 percent.

This is also in line with the celebration of World Restart A Heart Day on 16 October 2018 – a global initiative to increase cardiac arrest awareness and bystander CPR rates nationwide.

The CPR kiosk aims to raise awareness of this important life-saving skill and increase the number of people trained in CPR. The eight kiosks can be found at various public locations around Singapore, such as shopping malls, cinemas, hospitals and schools, with 13 more upcoming.
