Sudden Cardiac Arrest can strike at any time, and most victims won’t survive.
Over 33 000 Australians experience Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) every year. Undiagnosed heart conditions in children, young people and adults can be triggered suddenly and without warning when the heart experiences stress. Stress like you might experience at your normal Saturday sporting event.
The only way to restart the heart and save a victim of SCA from brain damage or death is by delivering an electric shock through the use of a defibrillator.
Why an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is essential at your sporting club:
In the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the only thing that will restart the heart is a shock from a defibrillator.
Anyone can save a life using an AED without fear that they’ll cause the victim more harm. The AEDs automatically issue the shock, leaving no room for doubt.
A rapid response is key to saving the lives of your players, coach and spectators.
The defibrillators we issue are as easy to use as a fire extinguisher, and take up the same amount of space.
Protect the lives of your sporting community.
Defib For Life is committed to saving lives by ensuring every sporting club has an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) on hand. Our AEDs take the guess work out, so any bystander can be the person that saves a life on the field.
Protect your club, your players, your coaches and your spectators by being rescue ready in the case of an emergency. Have a defibrillator available at your club.
