Life-saving defibrillators are needed in more public spaces, schools and workplaces to improve the chances of survival from SCA. When a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) happens, the likelihood of surviving decreases by 10% with every minute that passes without defibrillation. With 75% of ambulances in the UK arriving within 8 minutes, having a defibrillator on hand can be the difference between life and death.
Project Heartbeat is an initiative to help make public access defibrillators more accessible in communities. Not only does it help to supply these devices to communities across the country, but it also provides them with the knowledge and confidence they need to help save a life.
Project Heartbeat works with businesses in the UK, giving them the opportunity to sponsor a public access defibrillator in their community and potentially save lives.
