Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Over 170,000 people die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the UK every year. However, many can be saved if their heart is deļ¬brillated (shocked back into rhythm) with an Automated External Deļ¬brillator (AED). In a non-hospital environment, victims only have a 5% chance of survival but if a trained AED operator can treat the casualty in time, the survival rate can rise to a massive 80%.
