LONDON:  A new app will help anyone attending sports events to identify and treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) on the football field and save lives in emergencies.

Launched in Madrid today, the CPR11 app will offer clear and precise instructions on how to give compression and ventilation correctly, how to handle an automatic external defibrillator (AED) and, if necessary, how to transfer the player to a hospital.

It is designed by specialists from Ripoll & De Prado Sport Clinic, Spain along with Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), and its Medical and Research Centre (F-MARC).

It's 11 short videos help users to recognise a SCA and start resuscitation manoeuvres in the first two minutes and early defibrillation in the first three minutes after a player's collapse.

By making these techniques known to the widest possible number of people, those involved in the initiative believe it has every chance to help in saving lives.
