A defibrillator can mean the difference between life and death
ShockingAUS is a campaign designed to help spread knowledge about the importance of defibrillators in the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest – one of the leading causes of death in Australia.
When you use a defibrillator in the first few minutes after a sudden cardiac arrest, chance of survival can increase up to 70%.
Using a defibrillator can save a life.
You should use a defibrillator even if an ambulance is on its way
You do not need training to use a defibrillator
A defibrillator will not shock someone if they don’t need it
Using a defibrillator in the rain will not electrocute someone
A defibrillator will only shock someone if they’ve had a sudden cardiac arrest
Remember, doing something is always better than doing nothing.
