Special Offer for NECA Members for Defibrillator Awareness Month
October is the official month for Defibrillator Awareness, also known as Shoctober. In the event of cardiac arrest, a defibrillator on hand can mean the difference between life and death.
Per day, an average of 90 Australians are affected by a sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital setting. The use of a defibrillator within the first few minutes after a cardiac arrest can increase the chances of survival to as much as 70%. For every minute that passes without defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by 10%.
In recognition of Defibrillator Awareness Month, St John Ambulance SA are offering NECA members a huge saving on defibrillators for the month of October so now is a great time to buy!
