Ways to prevent the risk of cardiac arrest
Cardiac arrest is of one the UK’s biggest killers, with over 30,000 cases outside of hospital every year.
A sudden cardiac arrest is caused by an irregularity with the electrical system that controls the rhythm of the heartbeat. The electrical activity of your heart can become so chaotic that your heart stops beating altogether and quivers instead, preventing blood from being pumped around your body.
Without treatment, sudden cardiac arrest often leads to death, however, if an AED is used within the first 3-5 minutes, survival rates are improved by almost 70%. Contact Defib Machines to set up an AED rental package today on 0800 0852 733.
