Be prepared for sudden cardiac arrests, as every second counts.
SCA is silent, sudden and almost always deadly.
When they occur, the heart enters a chaotic rhythm preventing blood flow to vital organs, causing the heart to stop, and the person to collapse, lose consciousness and stop breathing.
With more than eight in ten happening outside of medical environments and the average ambulance response time being eight to ten minutes in the UK, it’s a necessity to have public access to Defibrillators as every minute that passes without defibrillation decreases chances of survival by 10%.
Don’t be part of the 52% of businesses that have never bought, nor considered buying, a defibrillator.
Around the world, more than seven million people suffer from a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) every year with no warning. Only 5-10% of these people survive.
During the demo, you will discover:
- The causes, the signs and impact of SCA.
- How to perform CPR and use a defibrillator.
- Why you should have a defibrillator in your workplace, and where they should be located.
- How to maintain a defibrillator.
- How to choose the right defibrillator.
