A HEART RESTARTING REVOLUTION
Every minute counts in treating someone suffering from cardiac arrest. CPR combined with a defibrillator, also known as an AED, has the potential to save up to 70% of arrest victims' lives.
Driver First Assist is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, and through the delivery of our award-winning training to save the lives of road crash victims, we’ve identified an opportunity to extend our work to save the lives of the victims of cardiac arrest.
Working with a well-established medical equipment manufacturer, we’ve developed a defibrillator which is 80% CHEAPER than current options. Instead of an average cost of £1000, with your help, we will offer all schools, colleges, restaurants, businesses and shops, defibrillators for only £220.
We’re calling it a Heart Restarting Revolution and we’d like you to play a part in it.
Every year in the UK, around 60,000 people experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and sadly our national average survival rate is extremely low at about 7%. Treatment with a defibrillator within 3-5 minutes of collapse can save 50-70% of lives but to achieve this we have to make defibrillators much more widely available to the public than through the Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) scheme. But our research shows that unfortunately, the price is a barrier; well not any more.
With your support, we can place defibrillators in communities across the UK. We already have over 5,000 orders in advance from our strong network of emergency services and social entrepreneurs. Improving our rates to that of Sweden alone could save an additional 5,750 lives every year. Will you support us and help us save lives?
We’ve already invested significantly to produce a production-ready, internationally type-approved AED. And like all other AEDs, it carries the CE Mark and fully complies with EN 60601 Regulations; so, low-cost does not equate to low-quality. We are happy to talk to companies about our certification and technical specification.
But we need funding to help with the cost of up-scaling production to meet the increased demand and our first year of working capital.
Our Heart Restarting Revolution has been described by medical experts as potentially “...THE BIGGEST GAME-CHANGER IN COMMUNITY RESUSCITATION in DECADES.”
Will you join the Revolution and help us save over 5,000 lives every year?
