If a person goes into sudden cardiac arrest, the chances of them surviving without the help of a defibrillator drop by 10-15% every minute, and they could be dead within 5-10 minutes. Having a defibrillator on-site ensures that if someone suffers a sudden cardiac arrest in the surrounding area, any first person on the scene has immediate access to a potentially lifesaving device which could make all the difference in the crucial minutes following a cardiac arrest. If treatment can be provided within 3-5 minutes, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%. So if you have a defib. at your business, sports club or in your community please make sure it is registered with your local ambulance trust so that in an emergency – the nearest AED device can be found easily and quickly.
In the unfortunate situation that you or another first responder needs to use your defib. it is essential that the unit is fully working, charged, has in date adult and pediatric pads.
