Every year, between 350,000 and 700,000 people are victims of a cardiorespiratory arrest (CRP) in Europe. Currently, the percentage of people who know the CPR technique is increasing but the number of victims receiving early CPR is still insufficient [1].

There are different scenarios in which cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) should be performed without the presence of the health team. In an educational establishment, a work unit, a church, a hotel, the home or the public highway, sudden and/or traumatic death can lead to cardio-respiratory arrest that requires immediate cardiac compression until the arrival of the ambulance to the place.
