Tackling the UK's biggest killer

 

HEARTS & GOALS ® WHAT IS SCA? WHAT IS AN AED?

BGDC 2014


  • Visit our new website to learn more about our campaign to tackle the UK's biggest killer - sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)
  • 100,000 people die from sudden cardiac arrest in the UK every year
  • 70% of golf venues across the UK & Ireland do not have an AED on site for use in the event of an emergency
  • SCA claims more lives than breast cancer, lung cancer and Aids combined
  • CPR only saves the lives of 9% who suffer SCA
  • CPR when used alongside a defibrillator massively increases the survival rate from 9% to 50% 

 

Our goal is to help place public-access AEDs across the UK.
