In a related editorial in this week's BMJ, Evans reiterates the recommendations made by Ruston and Norris and in particular stresses that as two thirds of all cardiac patients die at home, basic life support training should be targeted at close relative and friends of patients with known coronary artery disease. The author also draws attention to the proposed use of "intelligent" defibrillators by policeman, fireman and other lay first responders, such as security guards, airline cabin attendants and voluntary first aiders.
