LESS THAN ONE IN 10 PEOPLE SURVIVE AN OUT-OF-HOSPITAL CARDIAC ARREST IN THE UK – YOU CAN HELP BEAT THOSE ODDS
The Football Association is working in partnership with WEL Medical to provide the award-winning iPAD SP1 defibrillator at a special price for grassroots and amateur football clubs in England.
The news has covered many high-profile footballers who have suffered a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) but a lesser known fact is that 12- 14 youngsters die every week from a sudden cardiac arrest – there are no outward signs, no warning and no chance of survival without a defibrillator.
For every minute lost, their chance of survival reduces by 10%; this is ten minutes to save their life. The recommended time for an ambulance to reach a patient is seven minutes, if there are no traffic hold ups and the location is easy to access.
Can you take that risk?
The iPAD SP1 is used by the emergency services (NHS Ambulance, Police & Fire) across the country and this life-saving device has the support of the British Heart Foundation because it is designed for use by anyone, trained or not.
The FA special price is £695+VAT for grassroots clubs, a considerable saving on the usual cost of this award-winning defibrillator at £1,325+VAT. Free videos, leaflets and fundraising kits are also available to support you.
Support your club – make it Heartsafe - it will be the very best investment your club ever makes.
