“Emergency nurses are committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for victims of cardiac arrest and their families by ensuring timely and evidence based care both during and after cardiac arrest.”  Mr Lenson also called for the public to take a greater role in resuscitation, stating “We know every second matters in cardiac arrest and it is essential that everyone knows what to do when someone collapses. CENA strongly supports public training in CPR and Basic Life Support and any attempt at resuscitation is better than no attempt”
