Defibrilator AED Course

First Aid and Fire's Defibrillation AED Non-Accredited recognises that every year there are approx. 30,000 cases of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) within Australia, with the majority occurring outside a hospital setting.

 

The average ambulance response time in metro areas is 11 minutes and chances for survival decrease by 10% with each passing minute after SCA, making access to a defibrillator vital. A heart attack and SCA are two different conditions and the only treatment from ventricular fibrillation (the most common form of SCA) is defibrillation.
