What's a sudden cardiac arrest?
Cardiac arrest is the abrupt loss of heart function in a person who may or may

Each year, 328,000 peaple died by SCA in the USA, while the quality EMS.
Why I cannot just call EMS and wait?
The heart must be “defibrillated” quickly, because a victim’s chance of surviving drops by 7 to 10% for every minute a normal heartbeat isn’t restored.
In Thailand, EMS need more than 10 min to come and all EMS teams don't have AED/Defibrillator.
How to optimize the survival rate?
To expect the best survival chances, the witnesses role is essential, as you can see on the international guidelines survival chain. The lay rescuers are the witnesses!
In Thailand, the official national EMS phone No is 1669 (BDMS group has also the 1724).
Each minute saved to use an AED = 10% additional survival rate ! It's why it's important to install it everywhere.
