Every second counts for a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. A defibrillation within one minute raises the chance of survival to 90%. In addition to quality CPR, most cardiac arrest victims require immediate defibrillation to restore the hearts normal rhythm. The shorter the time to defibrillation, and the quality of CPR, the better chance of survival. If a victim of SCA receives quality CPR and a defibrillation within one minute there is a 90% chance of surviving the episode. Poor CPR and late defibrillation even in the best EMS systems can reduce survivability to less than 5%.
