Automated External Defibrillators Save Lives!

About 40,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in Canada, a majority of which occur at work or in public places. Every minute of delay in receiving CPR or defibrillator assistance reduces the chance of survival by 7%-10%

In Ontario alone, 7,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occur each year. Defibrillation, when used in conjunction with CPR in the first few minutes can drastically improve cardiac survival rates by more than 50%.

External Defibrillators (AEDs) must be simple, clear and straightforward. AEDs are built to the exacting standards needed for emergency personnel, yet are  designed for the speed and simplicity required for use by non-medical and often untrained individuals.
