Introducing Project Defib

Project Defib is a Red Cross initiative which aims to reduce the number of deaths caused by sudden cardiac arrest by making defibrillators and related training and support, accessible to all sporting clubs, schools and not for profits across Australia.

 

More than 30,000 Australians suffer from sudden cardiac arrest every year of which only 5% survive. Immediate access to a defibrillator can lead to a 70% survival rate if applied quickly.

 

Project Defib is a national program which enables every sporting club, school and not for profit in Australia access to a subsidised Lifeline VIEW Defibrillator package which includes, training and ongoing support.

Why do we need defibrillators?

Cardiac arrests are not just restricted to the elderly or high risk groups. A cardiac arrest can occur in children due to drowning or choking, receiving an electric shock, respiratory related medical conditions such as asthma and anaphylaxis, trauma, poison or congenital abnormalities.

 

Red Cross and the Heart Foundation both acknowledge the advantage of having easy access to automated external defibrillators wherever large groups of people gather, including schools.
