AEDs for Schools
Every year 270 children die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in school every year. Access to a properly trained First Aider and an AED can improve the chance of survival by as much as 70%.
Young children are at risk to cardiac arrest as their hearts are still growing and developing strength. They are also susceptible to commo cardis which is a condition following a sharp blow to the heart through heavy impacts, collisions and sports injuries.
This can lead to an SCA, which primarily is caused by an electrical malfunction in the heart which disturbs the regular heartbeat.
