It’s time for Australians to work together to improve cardiac arrest survival rates.

Poster with the text: "Nine out of ten people will not survive an out of hospital cardiac arrest"

Every year around 30,000 Australians suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. 9 in 10 won’t survive. It’s a scary statistic, but with your support we can change it.

Would you know what to do if someone was having a cardiac arrest?
A person who is unconscious and is not breathing or not breathing normally may be having a cardiac arrest and needs CPR immediately.

Early CPR increases the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest outside of hospital. Family, friends and other community members can help save a life by learning CPR  and knowing how to use an AED.

You Can Save a Life
In an emergency, every second and every action counts.

Before paramedics arrive there are three simple things to do:

Call: Triple Zero (000)
Push: Start CPR
Shock: Use a Defibrillator
