Defibrillator Training

There are around 3,000 cardiac arrests each year in NZ.

One third of these happen outside the hospital environment. Many of these cardiac arrests occur in people who have no prior symptoms or warnings and sadly fewer than 5% – 8% will survive without immediate treatment.

Calling 111 often isn’t enough

A defibrillator is a lifesaving piece of equipment to have in an emergency. If a person suffers a cardiac arrest, dialing 111 and performing CPR is not often enough to ensure that they will survive. Having an AED (automated external defibrillator) can increase the chance of survival by up to 40% when dealing with a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. A defibrillator applies a short powerful electric shock to the heart allowing the heart to regain its natural rhythm and so enhances the victim’s chance of survival.
