Will you be prepared when sudden cardiac arrest strikes?
Know the facts:
- Fact: Each year, approximately 40,000 people in Canada experience a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). This represents 1 SCA every 12 minutes.
- Fact: Nearly 80% of all sudden cardiac arrest happen in the home. A majority of the time, someone is in the home who could potentially help. That someone could be you.
- Fact: The risk of sudden death is highest soon after a heart attack, yet SCA is often the first sign of heart disease. In fact, 50% of males and 64% of females who experience SCA report no prior symptoms of heart disease.
- Fact: With every minute that passes without a shock to the heart, an SCA victim's chance of survival decreases by 7 to 10%. After 10 minutes, very few SCA victims survive.
In the case of sudden cardiac arrest, minutes count. For the best chance of survival, a defibrillator should be used within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, less than 7% of SCA victims survive, largely because a defibrillator doesn't arrive in time. While a defibrillator won't save every victim, many more lives could be saved if more people were reached more quickly.
