50-70% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims survive if defibrillation occurs within the first 5 minutes. For every minute that passes, there is a 10% less chance of survival. Do you know where the nearest defibrillator is at your work? At the shopping centre? Would you know how to find one if you needed to help someone?

Steps to take action

  3. The app also includes an instructional video on how to use an AED, directions on how to perform CPR and manage an unconscious patient, and links to other useful sites and apps.
  4. Encourage others to use the AED Locator app.
