In Staffordshire, the average time for emergency services to arrive following a 999 call is 8-12 minutes. In the case of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), every minute counts, the person’s survival rate drops by 7-10% for every minute defibrillation (and CPR) is delayed.
During this time, the person’s survival depends on bystanders who initiate CPR and defibrillation from an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Defibrillation within 3-5 minutes of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 50-70%. This means with more public access defibrillators, we could significantly improve survival rates.
