Sudden Cardiac Arrest - The Silent Killer

heartlogos-1.jpg

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is caused by an electrical malfunction of the heart called ventricular fibrillation, during which time electrical signals that normally induce regular, coordinated heartbeats suddenly go away. Defibrillation, an electric shock across the heart is the only effective treatment stopping the arrhythmia and allowing a coordinated heart rhythm to resume.

Every year, SCA strikes 350,000 people and less than 5 percent survive.


Time is of the Essence!

Surviving SCA is largely dependent on how quickly the victim is defibrillated. Access to conveniently located automatic external defibrillators (AED's) allow defibrillation to occur much earlier. Survival rates of over 50% have been consistently achieved with the implementation of properly designed programs.
