12 people under 35 die each week in the UK from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Of these, 270 children will die at school each year. While it is not mandatory for schools to have life-saving defibrillators, these devices significantly increase the casualty's survival chance. Without treatment, the chance of survival decreases by 10% per minute. Providing treatment within 3-5 minutes increases the chance of survival to 74%.
SCA does not discriminate and factors such as age, do not feature when determining the cause of the arrest.

Does my school need a defibrillator?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) does not discriminate. Anyone can suffer an SCA, including children. To protect staff, students and visitors against SCA, all schools should be equipped with a life-saving defibrillator. Without effective CPR and a shock from a defibrillator within the first 3-5 minutes of collapse, it’s likely that a person in cardiac arrest will die. We recommend access to a defibrillator for every school. For large schools, multiple defibrillators may be required to ensure you are never more than a 3-minute round trip from a defibrillator whilst on school premises.
Are defibrillators a requirement in UK schools?
Automated external defibrillators are optional in a school environment. Within the last year, the high coverage cases of SCA has put an enormous amount of pressure on the government to ensure all schools are fitted with a defibrillator. At defibshop, we stand by this.
How many times can a defibrillator be used?
A defibrillator can be reused as long as replacement parts are available. When a defibrillator has been used, the electrode pads should be replaced as soon as possible as they are single-use only. Defibrillator batteries have a lengthy shelf-life. Depending on the make and model, some defibrillator batteries deliver up to 500 shocks.
How can I buy a defibrillator for my school?
We have put together a range of Schools Packages that include defibrillators suited to a school environment. For primary schools, we recommend devices with a paediatric function to save time in a rescue. The government has published guidance on how schools can buy, install and maintain defibrillators. Do not hesitate to get in touch for further information and advice.
