Survive a heart attack? Learn more!!



DID YOU KNOW?
If defibrillation is administered within one minute of collapse, the survival rate for sudden heart failure goes up 90 percent. “Timing is key to survival. Waiting even 10 minutes to defibrillate drops the chances of survival to 10 percent,” says John Lynn Jefferies, MD.

This is a free, live, on-line Q and A where you and your readers can ask questions in real time.  It’s a chance to talk to knowledgeable and experienced doctors and get answers right on the spot.

  1. Before time defibrillation can save the life of people as it boosts the chances of survival by minimizing the cardiac damage. We never know or there is no timetable when anybody is likely to have an sudden cardiac hit but, if we have defibrillators in our region then the life could be saved by preliminary the defibrillation on time.
