    Story

    ‼️Gateshead West Policing Team supported by local pubs / Clubs & businesses in Ryton, Crawcrook & Greenside are raising a whopping £7000 to buy defibs and yellow defib security cabinets for every school in Ryton, Stella, Crawcrook & Greenside!‼️

    ⚠️270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school⚠️

    Based on European data, it is estimated that there is approxiately 60,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur every year in the UK

    In England alone, the Ambulance Service attemps resuscitation in aroud 30,000 OHCA cases, anually

    Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at Home; 20% will occur in public places

    Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die

    If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, their chance of survival increases from 6% to 74%

    Only 22% of people in the UK would be confident in performing CPR on a stranger

    There are a huge number of statistics that show the risk Sudden cardiac arrest and why defibrillators are so important and should be available in public buildings, leisure centres, workplaces, schools and community areas across the UK, to name a few.

    Response times and their importance

    The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event related incident in an urban area is 11 minutes

    For every minute that goes by where a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest does not receive treatment, their chance of survival decreases by 10%

    If defibrillation through a defibrillator occurs within 1 minute of the victim collapsing, the victim's survival rate increases to 90%

    For defibrillation to be successful, it needs to be delivered within a few minutes of the patient's heart entering into Ventricular Fibrillation (VF), but this period can be extended slightly if a bystander provides effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) without delay or hesitancy

    The likelihood of causing harm to the patient by performing CPR or using an AED is very small

    Basic first aid will maintain an oxygen supply to the patient's brain and other vital organs and make it more likely that the heart can be restarted by a defibrillator

    The main reason so few people survive Sudden Cardiac Arrest is due to defibrillation not being provided quickly enough after they have collapsed

    SCA risk factors

    There is usually no prior warning signs associated with Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    Factors such as the patient's current health condition, gender, age and ethnicity do not factor when determining the cause of Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    Most Sudden Cardiac Arrest cases are due to an abnormality of the heart's electrical rhythm called Ventricular Fibrillation (VF)

    Physically strenuous jobs will put people at a higher risk of falling victim to Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    Factors such as having a high blood pressure reading, obesity, smoking, high cholesterol levels, congential heart disease (CHD) and diabetes can make a person more susceptible to Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    Additional things such as electrocution, drowning, trauma, choking or respiratory arrest can potentially lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest
