Sudden Cardiac Arrest(SCA) strikes around 30,000 Australians every year, sadly less than 5% survive.
Time is crucial in determining whether someone survives, and many don’t due to an ambulance service not being available to get to them in time*.
The survival rate falls approximately 10% for every minute following the collapse until defibrillation.
The best chance that an SCA victim has to survive is to receive a “shock” from a defibrillator as soon as possible, following the incident.
