Wotton-Under-Edge has 15 defibs, which is good relative to its population size. For every minute that passes once in cardiac arrest, a person’s chance of survival dramatically reduces, so there is need of a defibrillator within a 4-5 minute walk. If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR performed within 3-5 minutes of a cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%.
