We're giving away an AED for National CPR & AED Awareness Week!
Sudden cardiac arrest can strike any time any place. Having an AED nearby and providing high quality CPR is critical to survival. Studies have shown that having an AED nearby along with early administration of CPR increases survival chances from 8-9% to over 60%. A heart attack is a “circulation problem” that occurs when blood flow to the heart is blocked. Sudden cardiac arrest is an “electrical problem” in which the heart malfunctions and unexpectedly stops beating.
Decrease the Death Toll
More than 350,000 people die each year because of SCA incidents that occur outside of a hospital. SCA claims one life every two minutes – more than breast cancer, lung cancer, or AIDS. Lowering this death toll means helping people understand SCA’s warning signs, how to prevent it, and how to respond properly to an SCA event.
Time-to-treatment is critical in SCA survival. Ninety-five percent of those who experience SCA die because they do not receive life-saving defibrillation within four to six minutes. This is why AEDs are so important. Every school, workplace, community space, or other place where people gather should have an AED ready and accessible in case of an SCA emergency.
