Heart Safe Australia - Saving Lives

Did You Know...


In Australia approximately 30,000 people sustain a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) outside of a hospital and are treated by emergency medical services (EMS) each year.

 

That’s 575 Australians suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) every week and ONLY 1 out of 10 WILL SURVIVE!

 

Facts

  • It can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone, even young athletes
  • Early defibrillation is the single most effective treatment for SCA
  • Defibrillation within three minutes of collapse can increase the chance of survival to over 70%

Saving Lives...

Heart Safe Environment Check

Heart Safe Australia is following the recommendations of the American Heart Association (AHA) by providing checklists and audits  to provide Heart Safe Environment to increase  the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest which is currently very low in Australia at 9%. 

Heart Safe Australia believes it is feasible to target a survival rate of 50%, which translates into some 12,000 more Australian lives saved every year with our Heart Safe Environment ticked location program. This represents 12,000 devastating personal tragedies we can avoid. It also represents significant social and economic savings.
