Community Defibrillator


St. John Ambulance's Community Defibrillators

In the mere seconds that a sudden cardiac arrest occurs, witnesses need to be willing to take action within minutes to ensure any chance of survival. Through CPR and use of an AED, chance of survival can reach up to 75%. Without CPR and a shock from an AED, the casualty is not likely to survive past 10 minutes.
