Restart a Heart Day 2022

Restart a Heart Day 2022

We're raising awareness of sudden cardiac arrest this October as part of Restart a Heart Day đź’š

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Did you know that approximately 30,000 Australians & New Zealanders will suffer an out of hospital sudden cardiac arrest and that 90% of those people will not survive.

With 80% of these events happening at home would you know what to do if you were the only one around when someone has a sudden cardiac arrest?

CALL - PUSH - SHOCK

Restart a Heart and Council of Ambulance Authorities advises to

  • Call - Call emergency services on 000
  • Push - Begin CPR compressions
  • Shock - Use an AED (automated external defibrillator) if one is available

Every minute a patient is in cardiac arrest, not receiving CPR or an AED shock, the chances of survival drop by 10%. After 10 minutes without intervention the damage caused by cardiac arrest is nearly irreversible. 

World First Live CPR Feedback

Without a HeartSine Samaritan 500P in particular, your AED could leave you vulnerable in terms of one of the important links in the Chain of Survival – CPR.

The HeartSine Samaritan 500P is the ONLY device that can ensure that your compressions are in fact effective - and specific to each individual victim too.

There is a vast difference of required pressure between victims (between 10kg pressure and 70kg pressure for adults), which is the downfall of older technology.
