Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a condition when the heart suddenly stops pumping effectively due to malfunction of the heart electrical system. This will restrict the blood flow to the body & cause death if untreated within a few minutes. The only way to resuscitate the patient is to provide defibrillation using AED (automated external defibrillator) which provides an immediate electrical shock to the heart in order to restore normal heartbeat.
SCA can happen to anyone, anytime and anywhere without any prior symptom. Rapid defibrillation with AED is crucial. We have 4 minutes to resuscitate the SCA victim from death by using AED with a higher chance of survival. For every minute that passes without defibrillation, chances of survival are reduced by 10 percent. After 10 minutes without defibrillation, the chance of survival is near to 0. Combination of CPR & AED can increase the chance of survival from 5% to 74%.
