Sudden cardiac arrest: increasing the chance of survival Each year in Australia, about 30,000 people suffer from sudden cardiac arrest (source: Australian Resuscitation Council). Many of these people have no warning, since they show no prior symptoms. Survival rates for such incidents remain low, unless early defibrillation is given. Defibrillation is the only real chance a casualty has of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest. An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) delivers measured electric shocks to attempt to restore the heart to a normal effective rhythm.
