Would you know what to do if someone around you suffered a heart attack? Chances are you have a loose idea from what you’ve seen in the movies, but that unfortunately isn’t quite enough.

Luckily, St John Ambulance is here to show you the ropes. Hopefully you won’t need to put this knowledge into action, but better safe than sorry (and you’ll also be winning if it comes up in a pub quiz). For example, do you know what the four Ps are?
