We are so pleased that Greg ‘Yellow Wiggle’ Page is recovering well, and has been discharged from hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest. Like us, Greg thinks there should be more defibrillators in the community, and as he says “These machines should be as readily available as fire extinguishers.”
He wants to share his message about the importance of being trained in CPR and having AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) available in as many locations as possible.
Every minute of delay in using a defibrillator reduces a person’s chance of survival, but unfortunately in Australia less than 20% of cardiac arrest victims receive early defibrillation. When an AED is correctly used within 3-5 minutes of collapse, it can dramatically increase a person’s chance of survival, by as much as 50-75%.
Watch Greg’s thank you video message to see how well he’s doing and hear his message. Thank you Greg, and The Wiggles for sharing this important message.
Our February product special means anyone can receive 20% off some of our defibrillators. If you own or manage a licensed venue, you can also contact us for a free site visit to see if you should have a defibrillator on site.
If you are interested in finding out more about learning CPR, or if you’d like to find out more about AED’s, give us a call on 6282 2399.
