Treatment of sudden cardiac arrest is time critical and for every minute that defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival decreases by around 7 to 10% per minute.
Allowing time to make an emergency call, the ambulance journey time and the time taken to administer a shock, the delay from collapse to paramedic treatment is usually 13 to 14 minutes at best. After this length of time there is virtually no chance of survival.
Therefore, easy access to on site Automated External Defibrillators and prompt defibrillation has the potential to safe lives and prevent the casualty from deteriorating prior to the ambulance service arriving.
