Defibrillation saved my life
Increasing the survival rate of Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the goal of the PAD Program. There are many ways we can each work for change in our communities. When it comes to fighting Sudden Cardiac Arrest, we can all work to ensure that AEDs are placed wherever people live, work and play. In doing so, we can help save needless deaths.
Implement a PAD program where you work, live and play and more lived will be saved. According to Heart and Stroke Foundation Canada,when an AED and CPR are immediately available, the chance of survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest may increase survival by 75% or more.
One of those lives could be yours or the life of someone you care about.
