After Collapse-The Clock Starts!
Time to defibrillation is probably the single most important determinant of survival in sudden cardiac arrest. Generally, every 1-minute delay in defibrillation decreases the likelihood of survival by approximately 10%. If you recognize that someone is in cardiac arrest, have someone call 911 immediately – but don’t wait for paramedics to act! Send someone to retrieve the AED immediately. Start CPR immediately until the AED arrives. Unpack the AED and follow the simple instructions provided with the AED. Immediate action makes a huge difference in the survival rate of cardiac arrest. YOU can make the difference by acting quickly.
