Over 150,000 people die from cardiac arrests in the UK each year. The majority might have been saved if only their heart could be defibrillated (shocked back into rhythm) within five minutes. An Automated External Defibrillator - with a trained operator at the site of a sudden cardiac arrest can raise the chance of survival from 5% to 80%.
