The welfare of your crew is your top priority and they want to know they are going to be taken care of in any eventuality. Being onboard a vessel means you don’t have access to hospitals and emergency medical treatment in the same way you would on land and the welfare of your crew falls in your hands. That’s why you need special considerations in place to ensure life-saving treatment can reach your crew should they need it.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can happen to anyone, anytime, without any warning, and is the world’s biggest killer, claiming a life every 3 minutes and killing 3 million each year. This means it could easily happen to your crew on one of your vessels.
With our disruptive approach to maritime technology and our focus on ship safety, performance, and crew welfare we want to make sure your crew is backed up with the best available technology there is in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
The only life-saving treatment for such an event, when onboard a vessel, is the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). If treatment with an AED is given within 3 minutes after a sudden cardiac arrest, the chances of survival jump from just 7% to 74%. Without an AED at all onboard your ship, the chances of survival reduce to 0 %.
