Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a major cause of death in Australia and New Zealand.
Sudden cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the failure of the heart to effectively pump. Once someone suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, it is critical that bystanders act very quickly to give the victim the best chance of survival. The longer the victim remains in this condition the lower the chances are that they can be revived.
Defibrillation and Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Factors leading to successful outcomes of Cardiac arrest include good quality CPR and the application of an electric shock by an Automatic External Defibrillator. Defibrillation is most likely to succeed if the patient is shocked within the first three minutes after collapse. The success rate of Defibrillation reduces by 7 – 10% per minute.
Chain of survival
The chain of survival is a series of actions that, properly executed, reduce mortality associated with sudden cardiac arrest. The availability and use of an Automatic External Defibrillator is a key factor in the successful outcome of a victim.
What is an AED?
An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It is a sophisticated, portable, easy to use medical device that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electronic shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective heart rhythm.
