The value of instructing members of the public in CPR is now widely recognised, but community training schemes which rely largely on volunteers may fail to reach their targets.
CPR training for lay people is often a once only activity and it has been shown that, without revision, skills deteriorate rapidly.
By teaching CPR in secondary schools all social classes and ethnic groups could be reached, and retention of skills improved by regular revision.
Health education has shown that it may be beneficial to use older pupils as instruction assistants.
