As i am sure you are already aware there has been a number of Footballers that have had Heart Related injuries and a Defibrillator has kept them alive. There is a 70% of survival with a Defibrillator and a lot less With out. With our club having kids as young as 4 and adults as old as in the 80’s we believe this to be a important part of kit
We Also have children within in our club that are on medication and heart treatment for the rest if their life.
The defib costs is about £1350 however we have already had £990 funding from other sources so are just looking to raise the last £310 this is a fully support Defibrillator by the Football Association and Also the British Heart Foundation
Approximately 30,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur every year in the UK
In 2013, the Emergency Medical Services attempted to resuscitate approximately 28,000 people after they suffered an Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest
Of the 28,000 people that emergency services attempted to resuscitate, only 8.6% survived and were discharged from hospital
Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at Home; 20% will occur in public places
The current rate of initial bystander CPR in England is reported to be around 43%
12 people under the age of 35 die every week due to sudden cardiac arrest in the UK
270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school
When someone has a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10%
Currently, only 20% of cardiac arrest victims are in a ‘shockable’ rhythm when the EMS arrive; this figure can be increased if more cardiac arrest victims received immediate, effective CPR from bystanders
If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%
The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event related incident in an urban area has increased from 8 to 11 minutes
Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die
If you can help with any think we would be very greatful
