Why Learn CPR?
Approximately 30,000 people suffer Cardiac Arrest in Australia each year with only about 10% surviving. Statistics show survival rates significantly increase when a AED is used on time. The ARC guidelines suggest that the survival rate however drops as much as 10% for every minute which passes without AED support during ventricular fibrillation, a shockable rhythm.
