Cardiac arrest is a treatable medical event that requires immedi- ate action to save a life. Cardiac arrest can strike indiscriminately and without warning, often leaving grieving family members and friends to question what could have been done differently.

When the heart stops, the brain will begin to die within 4 minutes. An ambulance takes 10-15 minutes to reach the victim. If CPR were instituted early, even before the arrival of the ambu- lance, it could make a difference to the victim’s survival. As cardi- ac (heart) arrest could occur at home, in the office, on the streets, bystanders able to perform CPR becomes valuable for the victim.

Institut Jantung Negara (IJN), being the premier cardiac hospital,
have taken the
first step of public responsibility by offering Basic
Life Support (BLS) training.

It is designed for healthcare professionals as well as public to provide emergency care to patients in a wide variety of settings, and teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in pre-hospital and in-facility settings.


To empower people the ability to administer this life saving treatment before the patient reaches the hospital.
