Wednesday, June 27, 2018

What questions do you need to ask yourself?

Did you know, every year more than seven million people globally suffer from a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) with no warning. And, only five to 10% of those affected actually survive.

As awareness around these issues continues to increase, more businesses are investing in defibrillators to help protect their employees, customers and the wider public.

But, with so many different options it understandably can be a daunting process. You need to ensure you have the equipment best suited to your environment and needs.

So, what should you look out for when choosing a life-saving device?

To help you make the right decision, we've created a printable checklist. Just click here or on the below image to download.

How you can save a life

Over 7 million people die each year as a result of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). 

It is often assumed that SCA only affects the elderly or the unwell, but in reality, anyone, anywhere at any time can suffer from an SCA. Tragically, many of these deaths can be prevented. Aero is currently running campaigns to help raise awareness around the use and importance of defibrillators in the chain of survival. 

When a defibrillator is used it can increase the chance of survival by an astonishing 74% while every minute that passes before emergency medical care takes place, the sufferers chance of survival diminishes by 7-10%

To coincide with our SCA awareness campaign, we've developed the following informative guide: "Defibrillators - how you can save a life." 

Accessible below, in the guide, you and your customers can learn:
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest stats and facts
