CROWDFUND A COMMUNITY AED
Do you know where your nearest AED is?
Globally, 17.7 million people die prematurely from cardiovascular disease annually. Over 70% of cardiac arrests happen out of hospital. Many happen within the home, so it is vital to have an AED close.
For every minute that passes without CPR and a defibrillator, a victim’s chances of surviving diminish by 7 – 10%.
The HIQA target response time for ECHO is to respond to 80% of calls within 18 minutes and 59 seconds.*
With bystander intervention using a defibrillator, the survival rate for a victim of a cardiac arrest triples to 31.4%.
By purchasing a defibrillator for the community, you can spread the cost and ensure there is an AED locally, which will save a life and give the best possible chance until the ambulance arrives.
