The next member of our First Aid Fanatics crew, Danny is up next to talk you through defibrillation so that you can combine this along with CPR to save a person’s life if ever you were to find yourself dealing with a cardiac emergency.

Sudden cardiac arrest affects 60,000 people a year in the UK. Without treatment, 90-95% of SCA victims will not survive. If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of the cardiac arrest occurring, the chance of survival increases from 6%-74%.
