King’s College London seeks participants for a research study on young cardiac arrest responders

Are you a young person (11-23 years-old) who has previously tried to help someone having a cardiac arrest by starting CPR? 

If yes, you might be interested in taking part in a King’s College London research study.  

Researchers are looking to talk to a range of young people who were 11-18 years old when they tried to help someone having a cardiac arrest by pressing down on their chest or using a heart restarter machine (defibrillator). This information will be used to develop CPR training for young people that better prepares them for a real-life event. Findings from the research will also increase the understanding of what kind of support young people might need after they have been involved in a situation like this. 

To learn more, please visit their website. If you are interested, please contact King's College London researchers at They will explain more about the study and answer any questions you have before you decide whether you want to take part. 

Please note, for young people under the age of 16, please talk to a parent (or a person with parental responsibility for you) first and ask them to contact us to find out more. Their permission will be needed before speaking with you.
