AED Superstore Scholarship - Click Here

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) occurring out of hospital claims over 326,000 lives each year, but still, many people are unaware of the dangers of this condition. Here are six other facts about SCA and automated external defibrillators (AEDs) you might not be aware of:

  1. SCA can happen to anyone, at any time, regardless of age, race, or gender.
  2. SCA affects roughly 16 people under the age of 18 every day.
  3. Only 1 out of 10 people who have SCA outside of a hospital survive.
  4. The survival rate for SCA victims decays by 10% for every minute without proper
    defibrillation; after 10 minutes, survival is negligible.
  5. AEDs have voice prompts and will talk the rescuer through every step.
  6. Under Good Samaritan Laws, voluntary rescuers are legally protected when aiding those in sudden cardiac arrest distress.

Select one of these six facts you were previously unaware of (and maybe shocked you!) or you wished more people knew about (if you already knew about all of these facts) and submit either a short essay or video which answers the following prompt:

For your chosen fact, address each of the following points:

  • Tell us which fact you’re choosing, starting with “I didn’t know that…” or “I wish more people knew…”
  • Recount your reaction to learning the fact
  • Give us an example of how you might spread awareness at your school or in your community (and please be more creative than making posters)
