When someone has a heart attack (sudden cardiac arrest or SCA), use of an AED can increase their survival chances by up to 40%.
Without an AED, chance of survival is only 5 to 8%, even with CPR.
An AED delivers a short, powerful electric shock to the heart, helping the heart to regain its natural rhythm.
