Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen anywhere at any time to anyone. Equipping your clubs sports facility with a defibrillator allows you to act effectively and confidently in the event of an emergency.
Using a defibrillator 3-5 minutes after a casualty has collapsed increases the chance of survival from 6% to 74%.
One of the most recognised Cardiac emergencies in sports is ex-Premier League footballer, Fabrice Muamba suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) during a match. And now, the more recent Christian Eriksen who suffered an SCA during Denmark’s opening game at Euro 2020. This displayed the risk and how important it is to have a readily available defibrillator in sporting environments.
SCA does not discriminate and the casualty’s current health condition and/or fitness does not feature when determining the cause.
