In 2017, a Sydney golfer tragically lost his life while on the golf greens after experiencing heat stroke which lead to cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, this kind of situation is far more common than most Aussies realise.
“The most alarming estimates suggest that more than 95% of all cardiac arrest incidents on golf courses are fatal.”~
So why is it that not all golf courses have an AED (or Automatic External Defibrillator) on hand to combat such statistics? Research suggests there is no good reason!
At First Aid Accident & Emergency we are huge advocates for ALL workplaces and public spaces should be equipped with an easy-to-operate, portable AED available at all times
