London Hearts are helping to fund Defibrillators in sports clubs all over the country, with £300 grants to support the costs.
Recent tragic Cardiac Arrest events involving professional sportspersons at the peak of their fitness show that Cardiac Arrest can happen to absolutely ANYONE at ANY TIME and ANYWHERE!
London Hearts are helping to fund Defibrillators in sports clubs all over the country. When someone has a cardiac arrest, timely intervention is the key to survival. By making more defibrillators available, and by training more people to use them, the better the chance of survival for a cardiac arrest victim.
If someone goes into cardiac arrest without a defibrillator, they have a 7% chance of survival. If a defibrillator is on the patient within the first 3-5 minutes, the chances of survival are over 70%
London Hearts have now launched an initiative to assist sports clubs in obtaining this life-saving equipment, offering a £300 grant towards the cost of every Defibrillator across the whole of the UK.
With every Defibrillator they supply, free online training will also be provided.
PADs are defibrillators placed in public places and accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The defibrillators are kept in an external cabinet, so when someone calls 999 in an emergency, the call handler can direct you to where the nearest defibrillator is. While an ambulance is on the way to the scene, bystanders can commence CPR and defibrillation before paramedics arrive.
This initiative will remain in place until the funding is exhausted.
