Every minute counts.
For patients that suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, a defibrillator is required to jolt the heart back into circulation by a trained clinician.
With the rate of death relating to sudden cardiac arrest growing exponentially in Australia, the ordinary person needs to have the capabilities to administer immediate care. The introduction of the Automated External Defibrillators empowered the lay community to respond in these situations and increase the chances of survival from a sudden cardiac arrest.
Should you purchase a defibrillator?
The chance of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest without immediate medical attention is less than 10%. However, the chance increases to 70% if defibrillation is administered within the initial five minutes.
Here are some reasons why you should consider purchasing a defibrillator:
- Cardiac arrest can happen to anyone – regardless of age or fitness level.
- The chance of survival from a cardiac arrest reduces by 10% for every minute that passes.
- You cannot always rely on an ambulance to arrive swiftly.
- Defibrillators are inexpensive and very easy to administer.
Having a defibrillator in your home, community club, school or workplace can make the difference between life and death. They are easy to use, portable and can save a life while an ambulance is on its way.
