Without CPR and defibrilation, the out of hospital survival rate is just 8%.
Every second counts and swift defibrillation is invaluable. Keeping Hearts Beating has been brought to life by members of the business community to raise awareness of the importance of local access to a defibrillator and bystander CPR.
Statistics show that if a defibrillator is used and CPR performed within 3 - 5 minutes of cardiac arrest, the chance of survival increases to 74%. We are working with Keeping Hearts Beating as we have noticed there there are not enough accessible defibrilators in [[TOWN]]. We’re working in partnership with Heart2Heart, the BOSS Federation and Cardiac Science to secure the best possible pricing for the most up top date technology for our local community.
