Forward Hearts lets survivors of a sudden cardiac arrest event pay it forward and potentially save another life by donating an AED to the organization of the survivor’s choice.
How it works
When a Lifepak® CR2 , Lifepak CR® Plus, Lifepak Express®, or HeartSine Samaritan® PAD is used to save a life*, the survivor chooses an organisation to receive a donated AED. The survivor can choose to make their donation to the organisation anonymously or be part of a public announcement.
If you have a Forward Hearts story, or know of someone who survived a sudden cardiac arrest due to the use of a Lifepak AED or a HeartSine Samaritan PAD, please share your story with us.
AED Authority Australia is committed to saving lives and making public access Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) more readily available in the workplace and community. The donation of a defibrillator through the Forward Hearts program extends this lifesaving technology to even more people, offering many a better chance of survival in the case of sudden cardiac arrest.
* Forward Hearts is available to survivors saved out of hospital in a workplace or community setting by a layperson rescuer. Other exclusions apply. Please contact your sales representative for details.
