When someone collapses in cardiac arrest, early recognition and prompt commencement of CPR combined with access to rapid defibrillation, provides the greatest opportunity for a positive outcome.

A defibrillator is most effective when used within the first minute of someone collapsing from a cardiac arrest caused by a fatal cardiac arrythmia. If used within this timeframe, the survival rate can be as high as 90%.

However, every minute that goes by without CPR and access to a defibrillator reduces a person’s survival from cardiac arrest by 10%.
