GIFTING DEFIBS TO THE COMMUNITY
Because Australia is a nation that loves to play, Heart of the Nation recognises that community groups are an essential part of who we are, what we do, and how we live as a nation.
But not all community groups can afford to have AED's on hand - so we are here to support those groups - particularly in disadvantaged or remote areas of Australia where support and financial assistance are hard to come by.
A look at the statistic on the right hand side of the page regarding Seatlle's survival rate for SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) will tell you that they are doing something right in the fight against SCA taking lives. Essentially, they have a much quicker response time for bystander-CPR (because they learn it at school) and much quicker time to access defibrillators (because they are publicly available).
When it comes to cardiac arrest, time is of the essence - good quality CPR and early access to defibrillators makes a huge difference to a person's chance of survival. That's why we are passionate about getting as many out in the community as we can!

If you would like to assist us in our mission, you can purchase a defib (AED) from Aussie Defibs where for every 5 defibs purchased via our online store, 1 will be donated to the work we do at Heart of the Nation. We urge corporate Australia, and those who are capable of paying retail for units to buy them from Aussie Defibs.
