Heart film that could help save lives screened across Premier League coverage

Dr Thomas Keeble being filmed

The world-renowned Essex Cardiothoracic Centre at Basildon Hospital has scored a blinder by featuring in a high-profile video being screened across all channels showing Premier League games - including Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.

The potential life-saving video, is highlighting when and how to use a defibrillator to save lives.

Appearing in the video last night (Wednesday 3 May) was Dr Thomas Keeble, Consultant Cardiologist at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust, as part of a campaign to raise awareness of cardiac arrest.

In the video he said: “A cardiac arrest is when the heart just stops pumping, what that needs is CPR, calling for help and defibrillation. What CPR does is buy you time.”

With such an important message, it’s now hoped that this video will reach a huge captive global audience through being screened during Premier League coverage and help educate others and even save lives.
