How to survive sudden cardiac arrest at sea

Did you know that 1 in 5 ship excursions are forced to divert due to medical reasons?

One of the few vessel diversion reasons is sudden cardiac arrest. It can affect anybody of any fitness level and age, anywhere, at any time. It’s the world’s biggest killer, with over 17.3 million deaths per year worldwide due to heart complications, and with it expected to rise to as much as 23.6 million by 2030, being protected and having the correct equipment is key to helping victims survive. At sea, no emergency response unit will ever reach your vessel in time, so it’s up to you to have the right equipment on board to save a life when necessary.
