The UK's leading defibrillator charity

London Hearts is a charity aiming to help and support communities with the provision of heart defibrillators and to teach CPR/defibrillator skills.

Defibrillators (also known as AEDs - Automatic External Defibrillators) are medical devices that help and support a patient in cardiac arrest. In fact, they are the ONLY devices that can help when someone has a cardiac arrest. With the effective and speedy delivery of treatment, survival can be raised to 70 percent, but this requires CPR (chest compressions) and also use of a defibrillator. The chance of survival decreases 10% per minute after a cardiac arrest, so the faster help can be given the better the outcome. The process is known as the 'Chain of Survival'.

 

◦ To provide Public Access Defibrillators in the UK working with strategic partners. Ideally, we believe defibrillators should be publicly accessible so they are ready to be used if and when they are needed. 

◦ To raise awareness of heart conditions.

◦ To ensure no one is ever further than 100M away from a defibrillator.
