More than 800 people have set a new World Record at a University of Manchester-organised CPR relay, in aid of European Restart a Heart Day, according to the World Record Academy. The Guinness World Records' for the largest CPR training session involved 11,840 participants and was organised by Klinik für Anästhesiologie, operative Intensivmedizin und Schmerztherapie Münster (Germany), in Münster, Germany, on 17 September 2013. Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people to complete CPR training in 24 hours; it was 20,035 people achieved at an event organized by the Taoyuan County Government, Taoyuan City, Chinese Taipei, on 7 December 2012 Training to save a life only takes 15 minutes and each volunteer who took part performed chest compressions for one minute before the next person took over. Even a five second delay between the transfer between people would have resulted in the record being invalid, so organisation was key to the success of the attempt.
