“A Shock to the Heart” is a fundraising project through which we want to donate defibrillators to all Italian cities, to be installed in squares,
parks, bike paths, pedestrian areas, and densely crowded places for timely intervention.
We are installing defibrillators in the following cities:
“A shock to the heart,” and it is the shock of a defibrillator administered within the first few minutes of a cardiac arrest that can greatly increase survival.
The time to intervene is very short: survival rates decrease by 7-10% per minute if defibrillator intervention is not taken.
If a cardiac arrest victim is not defibrillated within 10 minutes, his or her chance of survival is less than 2%. If the heart does not restart within the first 5 minutes, the patient may receive irreversible brain damage.
It is from these statistics that Unbeatables has decided to launch a heartshake, with the goal of raising funds to install as many defibrillators as possible in the municipality.
