Sudden Cardiac Arrest is indiscriminate.
It can strike anyone at any time regardless of age, medical history or level of fitness. Each year in Britain alone more than 30,000 incidents happen outside of a hospital and less than one in ten victims survive.
Knowing what to do when Sudden Cardiac Arrest strikes could save a life. A fast response is vital – the chances of survival drop by 20% every minute without treatment – but the average ambulance response time is over 11 minutes.
