Some points you might like to use when spreading the word

Currently, Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are not within immediate reach of many Australians due to the variety of different approaches to their regulation and provision.  Unfortunately, for any Australian suffering a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), their chance of survival is heavily dependent on proximity to an AED.

Key Facts

  • Some 23,000 to 33,000 Australians are estimated to suffer a SCA each year
  • For each minute that passes without treatment, the chance of survival is reduced by 10%, therefore a 10 minute “window of opportunity” to act
  • The average ambulance response times in Australia, whilst exceptional on a global scale is between 8-12 minutes
  • Overall Survival of SCA is estimated to be between 9% - 12%
  • Survival climbs to above 50% when CPR and Defibrillation is applied within 3 minutes
  • Only 1 in 4 workplaces have a AED installed
