Public access to Defibrillators in WA

POSTED ON 11 June 2015

In the past few months, Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) has been the focus of many news stories around the world, and it's not just the elderly or the unfit that are affected.  Sadly within the span of a week three high profile young athletes suffered sudden cardiac arrest and died. These athletes were all under the age of 30 with no history of cardiovascular disease. SCA often strikes without warning and with little or no symptoms.

SCA is an unknown killer of over 30'000 Australians every year. Heart disease is number two on the list for the world's biggest killers just behind cancer. However cardiovascular diseases as a whole is still the most common cause of death in Australia. Not every death is preventable - but with the proper preparation and training the lives of so many Australians could potentially be saved.

Access to a defibrillator is vital to success survival rates of individuals suffering from SCA. Public access to a defibrillator and CPR training are also items that the WA governments are yet to establish unlike the majority of other states across Australia.

Improving the outcomes for SCA should be at the forefront of any facilities first aid plan.
