Defibrillators

In the EU 1500 people die every day due to a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) – that’s over half a million people each year! With an AED nearby you can increase the risk of survival after a Sudden Cardiac Arrest by up to 70%.

WHAT IS A SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST?
When somebody has a SCA the heart is no longer able to pump blood around the body, SCA is usually caused by a chaotic fast heart rhythm called Ventricular Fibrillation (VF). The only way to bring the heart back to its normal rhythm is by giving an electric shock. Urgent assistance is crucial within the first minutes after SCA. 10 minutes after the onset of SCA the survival chance is only 10% - the response time of an ambulance is on average 10-15 minutes.

WHY USE AN AED?
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that analyses the victims heart rhythm and will diagnose if an electric shock is necessary. During the resuscitation process the AED assists the care giver with both verbal and visual instructions; it provides assistance during heart massage and mouth to mouth resuscitation.
