Have you considered a defibrillator for your building?Source: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; National Institutes of Health; U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
(Also known as an AED - Automated External Defibrillator ) 

Approximately 5 - 6 New Zealanders are treated for cardiac arrest outside of hospital every day!
CLICK to download - What you need to know about AEDs

CPR certainly improves survival after cardiac arrest, but the use of a defibrillator within 3–5 min of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 50% - 60%! This can be achieved by having easy access to an AED Unit. Each minute of delay to defibrillation reduces the probability of survival by 10–12%.

We are living longer, add to that our diets and lifestyles, and it is easy to see why 3 times as many New Zealanders are dying from cardiac arrest than die on our roads.
