What is Project Heartbeat?
Project Heartbeat helps businesses across the UK to install public access defibrillators in their communities and provides positive publicity and promotion of the business. It’s run in partnership with the charity AEDdonate, and the automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are supplied by Cardiac Science.
Why does my community need an AED?
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can happen to anyone, anywhere.
More than 30,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests happen in the UK every year. And when an SCA strikes, every minute without defibrillation decreases the chance of survival by 10%.
However, if an AED is used within a minute of the person collapsing, the chance of survival could be as high as 90%. So having a defibrillator nearby can easily be the difference between life and death.
