Approximately 3,500 people undergo attempted resuscitation each year after an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, but currently only around 1 in 20 survive. Defibrillation works in synergy with CPR, and is most effective the earlier it is performed. Delivering a defibrillatory electrical shock to the heart within 3-5 minutes of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 75%.
Before March 2015, the figure for the Scottish Borders region stood at 4%.
As at April 2017, via the hard work and efforts put in by the likes of Kelso Heartbeat - this figure has now risen to a 29% chance of survival in Scottish Borders.
The mission therefore is do whatever we can to raise funds to assist the Kelso Heartbeat hero’s continuing to do what they do to further increase the chances of survival rates from a cardiac arrest.
