Automated External Defibrillators

What you need to know:

Earlier this year while raising money for the Bushfire Appeal, Yellow Wiggle Greg Page suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. It is due to the quick thinking of Page’s bandmates, an off duty nurse and a Public Access Defibrillator that Page is still here today.

Each year in Australia 30,000 people die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest, an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a life-saving device that restores the normal rhythm to a heart that has suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can strike anyone, anytime, without warning. A victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest collapses immediately, with their heart unable to pump blood through their body. For every minute CPR and a defibrillator are not used there is 10% less chance of survival.
