"It is estimated that every year, sudden cardiac arrest claims the lives of approximately seven million people globally. Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, regardless of age or physical fitness, and there are often no symptoms leading up to a collapse. The best chance of survival from the most common causes of sudden cardiac arrest is defibrillation from an AED within the first few minutes of collapse. For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, survival decreases by seven to 10 percent, making quick access to AEDs crucial in these emergency situations."
