Rent a Defibrillator
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the sudden loss of all heart activity due to an irregular heart rhythm. Breathing stops. The person becomes unconscious. Without immediate treatment, sudden cardiac arrest leads to death.
Why Do I Need A Defibrillator?
Immediate CPR and defibrillation is the only form of treatment for someone who has suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Without immediate help, a person who has suffered an SCA loses approximately 10% of their chance of survival for every minute that goes by.
When effective CPR and defibrillation is provided to an SCA victim, survival chances can increase from 6% to 74%, whilst defibrillation within 60 seconds can see survival chances increase to 90%.
Defibrillators are easy to use, visual and audio instructions walk the user through the process. There are two types of defibrillators:
- Semi-Automatic defibrillators will require you to push a button to deliver a shock to the patient if a shockable rhythm has been detected
- Fully-Automatic defibrillators will automatically shock the patient if a shockable heart rhythm is detected
