a cardiac arrest, the chance of survival falls by 10%
every minute without action. However, with CPR and the use of a
defibrillator within 3 minutes, the chance of survival could be as
high as 70%.
In England the rate of survival to discharge for the 28,000 out
of hospital cardiac arrests where the emergency medical services
attempted resuscitation in 2013 was 8.6%.
