Life or Death; Minutes Decide
Sudden Cardiac Arrest can strike anyone, at any age, at any time, anywhere, often without prior symptoms. Victims include family members, colleagues, and friends with a lot to live for. It is possible to give them just that.
The estimated rate of sudden cardiac arrest outside the hospital in the western world is 1 per 1000 people per annum, making it one of the leading causes of death.
In up to 85% of cardiac arrests the heart loses its normal rhythm. Instead of beating rhythmically it simply quivers, flailing to pump blood around the body. The only treatment to alter this lethal conditions an electric shock through the heart using an Automated External Defibrillator(AED)
