National Statistics show that around an average of 280 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school. European data is estimated that there are approximately 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests every year in the UK.
In England alone, the Ambulance Service attempts resuscitation in around 30,000 cases, annually. Approximately 80 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) occur at home; 20% will occur in public places. With this in mind, if immediate treatment is not given then, 90 to 95% of sudden cardiac arrest victims will unfortunately die.
