Seconds count in a cardiac arrest
Every year around 30,000 Australians and New Zealanders suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
Every minute a patient is in cardiac arrest, not receiving CPR or AED shock, chances of survival drop by 10%.
Eighty percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in our homes.
Would you know what to do if you were the only one around and someone had a Sudden Cardiac Arrest? Most don’t.
After 10 minutes without intervention the damage caused by cardiac arrest is nearly irreversible.
