How CPR friendly are you?
While 99% of Australians believe CPR is a ‘critical life skill,’ only 26% are CPR friendly. This means most Australians don’t know what to do and aren’t confident to provide potentially life-saving first responder care in an emergency situation. In Australia, 25,000 people die from an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest each year. It does not discriminate and can happen to anyone, with 5 Australians under 35 years of age dying each week from sudden cardiac arrest. You can make a difference to these statistics by becoming defibrillator aware and CPR friendly today, here, in minutes.
How CPR friendly is your family, street, club, community and workplace?
In Australia only 9% of people who have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survive. Whereas the world record survival rate for sudden cardiac arrest is 62%, held by Seattle, USA. The main reason for the difference is that 75% of Seattle’s population are CPR friendly and they have greater public access to defibrillators, whereas less than a third of Australians are CPR friendly. If you don’t have the time to get CPR certified, at least get CPR friendly, here, in minutes. Life depends on it!
The evidence is clear, the maths is simple: CPR friendly people + defibrillators = lives saved
