Charity Resuscitation Council UK is urging members of the public to learn how to perform CPR after international footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during Denmark’s match today.
Fans and spectators witnessed Eriksen suddenly collapse during the game. As soon as his fellow footballers realised he needed help, they alerted the referee, and medical assistance arrived quickly. Those attending to him quickly started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and used a defibrillator. According to reports Eriksen is now conscious in hospital.
We are delighted that Professor Gavin Perkins has joined the impressive and elite group of notable individuals who have been honoured since 1985 as a 'Giant' in resuscitation by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time. It can happen to elite footballers, such as Danish international Christian Eriksen, and it can also happen to someone having a weekly kick-about in the gym. No matter who they happen to, and which type of pitch they happen to be on, there’s one thing that’s certain – quick CPR and defibrillation can be the difference between life and death.
