SADS Week 2021 – SADS in Sport Talk – to Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) students - Loughborough College

A 'Huge thanks' once again to Steve Wilkinson, FE Sport Tutor & Dual Career Coordinator Loughborough College, Jo Maher, Ceara Toal, Alex Wint, Harshil Dhutia, Consultant Cardiologist, Glenfield Hospital UHL, Medical lead for JHMT, Alan White, JHMT lead trainer JHMT- JHMT photographer Stephen Baum and of course the talented and committed TASS students of 2021 who were fully focused to learn CPR and how to use an AED should they ever be called upon to save a life.

Steve Humphries, chair of JHMT, said: " The Euro's SCA incident when Christian Eriksen collapsed was a perfect example that players (athletes) at every level of sport are more than capable of recognising an emergency than given credit for. When every second counts, there is only a small window of time for someone needs to react. If you can immediately recognise someone's not responding and have those key lifesaving skills then more lives can be saved anywhere both on and off the field of play. After all, anyone can be a lifesaver. "

"Wherever sport is played, a defibrillator should be on site and readily accessible. When every second counts, it could be the difference between life and death. Immediate CPR is crucial whilst the defibrillator is brought to the patient and it's also vital that as many people as possible have CPR skills, including players, officials and spectators as they may be the closest to where someone has collapsed." – Charles Poole – JHMT
