Defibrillation is a life-saving technique used to restore normal heart rhythm in individuals experiencing a cardiac arrest. It involves the use of an electrical shock to the heart, which can be delivered by a device called a defibrillator.
According to the Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK), the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest decrease by around 10% for every minute that defibrillation is delayed. Therefore, immediate access to defibrillators and trained personnel is critical. In fact, the RCUK estimates that widespread deployment of defibrillators in public locations could increase survival rates from cardiac arrest by up to 50%.
