    DEFIBRILLATORS SAVE LIVES!

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

    I will be running the Windermere marathon on the 21st May to raise funds.

    When someone has a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10%. Please help us to protect residents, staff and visitors at Old Park Wood by buying a defibrillator. We hope that we will never need to use one but having a defibrillator will maximise the chances of resuscitation during an emergency.

    Please help us.

    • There are approximately 30,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests per year in the UK
    • In 2013, the Emergency Medical Services attempted to resuscitate approximately 28,000 people after they suffered Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests
    • Of the 28,000 people EMS attempted to resuscitate, 8.6% survived and were discharged from hospital
    • Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at Home; 20% 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 per 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%
    • Emergency services average response time to a cardiac event related incident in an urban area has increased from 8 to 11 minutes
