It’s a race against time when someone stops breathing. If good basic life support is given, and a defib is used within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to a whopping 74%! 

Knowing where the nearest defib is, and being able to get to it in super-quick time is hugely important in helping save someone’s life.
