Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming more than 696,000 lives annually. Of these deaths, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is responsible for half — about 325,000 every year. For every minute defibrillation is delayed a victim’s chance of survival decreases by 7-10%.1 Having an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) available for use is a critical component of responding to sudden cardiac arrest. Over half the victims of the most common cause of SCA can survive when treated early with CPR and shock from a defibrillator.2
