Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Why choose a Automated External Defibrillator?
It's a scary fact that, annually, around 30,000 people have a cardiac arrest outside of hospital.
Less than 10% will survive to be discharged from hospital.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), often confused with heart attack, can strike any person, anywhere, anytime. In most cases, there are no previous symptoms. When someone collapses from SCA, immediate defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are essential for any chance of recovery.
Electrical defibrillation is well established as the only effective therapy for cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation. Research shows that the best chance of survival is to apply a controlled shock within the first five minutes of collapse.
With ambulances not always being able to arrive quickly, those first few minutes are literally a matter of life or death. Wouldn't it be fantastic to have a product on site, everywhere in the UK, which could guarantee the best possible chance of survival following a cardiac arrest?
