Help 999 teams find missing heart defibrillators

About 70,000 of the life-saving devices are in UK community locations unknown by the emergency services. …

Sue Hampshire from Resuscitation Council UK said: “Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time. Currently, less than one in ten people in the UK survive a cardiac arrest out-of-hospital. The chance of survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest can be increased two-to-threefold by the immediate provision of bystander CPR and defibrillation, that is why it is essential all devices are registered on The Circuit. We urge those that have not registered to do so immediately so many more lives can be saved.”
