If defibrillation occurs 3 minutes after collapse, chance of discharge from hospital is 66%
For every minute that defibrillation is delayed, the chances of surviving Sudden Cardiac Arrest decreases by between 7% and 10%
13% of workplace fatalities are from Sudden Cardiac Arrest
We know it can be a difficult decision, whether to provide a defibrillator or not. You’ll have concerns such as “Will I be liable if a victim were not to survive?”, “What type should I buy?”, “Who will be able to use it?” and “Can we afford it?”. These are concerns which we can discuss when we speak with you personally on the phone.
Be yours a Factory, School, Golf Club, Shopping Centre, Airport or Community, in fact anywhere that there are a number of people within its radius, an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is their potential Lifesaver.
Defibrillation, combined with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is the only way to re-establish the heart's natural rhythm, and the only way to do that is to have an available AED close at hand.
Every day, someone like you, me, a friend or colleague saves a life by using an AED. Even if they have never seen one before, it will talk them through exactly what is required and at what pace, in a calm and reassuring voice.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) kills a staggering 270 people each day in the UK alone, which is more than Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer and Aids combined. It can happen to anyone, any age, and it does. 15 young people die each week. That’s over 700 young lives, each year, many of which could be saved with an AED.
If you have access to an AED, the chance of saving a victim of SCA is increased by 50% if used within 4 minutes. For every minute that passes, their chance of survival reduces by 10%. CPR alone will only result in 5% survival.
