In an effort to gauge public awareness of sudden cardiac arrests and the importance of bystander intervention in saving lives, Madimack has partnered with the Surf Life Saving community, Australia.
Did You Know? According to the NSW Govt., nearly 33,000 sudden cardiac arrests happen annually, of which 80% of the cases occur at home. Many of these victims show no prior signs or symptoms of a heart attack, such as a history of heart diseases or other risk factors. In other words, a cardiac arrest can happen at home to someone with no prior history.
Many people consider cardiac arrests as a fairly rare occurrence. But the truth is, globally cardiac arrests take more lives than all cases of colorectal cancer, great cancer,, HIV, fire arms, house fires, auto accidents, prostate cancer, pneumonia and influenza combined!
With the hope that our initiative will help educate the public about bystander CPR training and performance we are offering Free Living Room Lifesaver Course and a Free Resuscitation chart.
