Chance of survival with every minute that passes

When we are talking about defibrillators we really are talking about life and death, which is why it’s so important to get the right one.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the world’s biggest killer. In the UK alone it affects 250,000 adults every year and there is no cure and CPR won’t fix it.

You have to deliver a shock to the heart to restore its natural rhythm – and with every minute that passes without a shock from a defibrillator, survival rates drop by 10%.
