“Hands-only CPR” has previously been supported by the Resuscitation Council (UK).
But it is now being promoted in a new advertising campaign featuring footballer-turned-actor Vinnie Jones.
New polling by the BHF suggests many feel worried about the idea of giving the “kiss of life”.
The official position of the BHF is now that anyone who does not have CPR training should ignore the kiss of life in favour of hard and fast compressions in the centre of the chest.
A new poll conducted across the UK and involving 2,000 respondents showed nearly half were put off from performing CPR because of a lack of knowledge.
