“Shoctober” Cardiac survival launch

SCHOOL STUDENTS DEMONSTRATE HOW
EASY DEFIBRILLATORS ARE TO USE
Brookvale Oval this morning from 7.15am

Media are invited to attend the launch of “Shoctober” at Brookvale Oval this morning, an initiative of the Cardiac Arrest Survival Foundation (CASF), who are seeking to make October defibrillator survival month.
Over 80 St Augustine’s students aged from 12 to 14 years will join celebrities including rugby legend Nick Farr-Jones and Layne Beachley, along with the Hon Bronwyn Bishop MP and the Mayor for Warringah, Michael Regan, from 7am in a mass simulation of defibrillators use on the oval.


CASF Chair Dr Donald Dingsdag said that properly implemented defibrillators save lives and that awareness of and training in the devices should be far more widespread across the community.
“Thirty thousand Australians die every year from cardiac arrest, dwarfing deaths from car accidents and many types of cancer,” Dr Dingsdag said.
“But the good news is that defibrillators save lives and even school children, without training, can use them almost as quickly as paramedics can.
“The Cardiac Arrest Survival Foundation is a registered charitable fund that aims to reduce needless deaths from out of hospital cardiac arrest.
“We want to spread the word about how easy defibrillators are to use and encourage their placement in public places where they may be needed, right across Australia.”
Dr. Dingsdag said that media were welcome to attend the “Breakie at Brookie.”
Official Launch:
In addition to the activities in Brookvale, there will be a formal launch of Shoctober at 5:30pm today at
the Intercontinental Sydney, including details of the official submission provided to the Department of
Health urging the recognition of October as Defibrillator Survival Month.
