About Save Lives

  • "You don’t have to be a doctor to save a life.
    Simple-to-use technology makes it possible"

    "Did you know that the average person with a basic understanding of CPR(Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and access to an Automated External Defibrillator(AED)can save a life? " 1 1. Capucci A, Aschieri D, et al. “Tripling Survival From Sudden Cardiac Arrest Via Early Defibrillation Without Traditional Education in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.” Circulation. 2002;106:1065-1070.
    It's true. You may be able to save the life of a sudden cardiac arrest(SCA) victim by using an AED to deliver an electrical shock to the heart muscle, allowing it to regain spontaneous circulation and pump blood properly again.

    "Right now, only 1 person in 20 currently survives SCA outside the hospital." 2 2. Handley, Koster et al., "European Resuscitation Council Guidelines for Resuscitation 2005: Section 2. Adult basic life support and use of automated external defibrillators". Volumen 67, S. 7 - S. 23, December 2005
    Why? A major reason is that the heart is not defibrillated in time. Unless a normal heartbeat is restored quickly, chances of survival are severely reduced. 3 3. R.W. Koster et al. / Resuscitation 81 (2010) 1278

    Every 60 seconds of delay before a victim is defibrillated
