Anyone can make a difference with a defib

Help us improve cardiac arrest survival rates

When someone suffers from cardiac arrest, that person's likelihood of survival drops 10% for every minute a defib is not used to restart the heart. It's therefore critical to use a defib within minutes of cardiac arrest while CPR is being performed. Paramedics will take over when the ambulance arrives. 


Defibs are really easy to use

There is nothing hard about using a defib. It even talks you through the steps and, once applied, operates without assistance. It’s also impossible to hurt someone with a defib. If a heart is beating, it won’t apply a shock.

Whether in your home or workplace, let’s get as many defibs out into the community as possible and help life go on.

Watch St John Paramedic Brooke demonstrate how easy it is to use a defib.
