Defibrillators & Accessories

Having a lifesaving defibrillator on site is essential for ensuring that quick action is taken in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Many instances occur suddenly and without any prior indication that the victim was at risk, in fact SCA can happen to anyone whether old, young, healthy, overweight, a smoker or not.

A victim of SCA is 3 times more likely to survive if they recieve early defibrillation and for every minute that passes chances of survival reduce by 7-10% It is crucial that CPR and defibrillation are applied as soon as possible following a cardiac arrest.
