In the event of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), every minute that defibrillation is delayed the chance of survival decreases by around 7 to 10%. Most deaths caused as a result of SCA are potentially avoidable by using defibrillation, but the success rate is high only if treatment can be given within four to five minutes of the event.
Medical emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time. Having immediate access to the right emergency equipment, along with the right level of training for those first on the scene, has the potential to save lives.
The LIFELINE range of resuscitation equipment, including oxygen cylinders and defibrillators, is designed not just for use by medical professionals (such as doctors and dentists) but also by appropriately trained first aid personnel within the workplace and community.
