Having a defibrillator close to your workplace is essential
Do you know where your nearest AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is?
If you’re unsure, what would you do if someone close to you suddenly suffered a cardiac arrest? It’s a fact that without CPR and defibrillation, only 8% of people who have a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCI) survive. We’re here to change that. We’re highlighting the importance of having an on-site, easy to use defibrillator at your workplace to help save lives.
The defibrillator facts cannot be ignored:
Each year in Britain alone, around 30,000 people suffer a sudden cardiac arrest outside of hospital environments
If a defibrillator is used within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, the survival rates increases significantly from 6 percent to 74 percent
In a recent survey, 3 out of 4 of people said they wouldn’t feel confident enough to act if they saw someone having a cardiac arrest
Minutes are critical during cardiac arrest and without CPR and defibrillation, the chance of survival reduces by 10% each minute
