Sudden cardiac arrest affects six million people worldwide every year. It kills over 100,000 adults in the UK annually, and 15 young people every single week.
The statistics speak for themselves: chances of survival out of hospital are incredibly low at less than 6%. In fact, your chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest decreases by 10% with every minute that passes. To put that into perspective, on average, ambulance response times in the UK are above 11 minutes.
You can help protect your loved ones, your customers, your students, or your colleagues simply by having an on-site Automated External Defibrillator. An AED is designed to restart the heart's normal rhythm in cases of sudden cardiac arrest - and the best bit? They can be used by anyone - even a child could operate one.
