How to survive an heart attack ?

Recently I visited the Philips Innovation Center in Bangalore. While talking to Dr Mabel who had come there to give a demonstration of the lastest Philips Automated External Defibrillator (AED) I came to know of some interesting facts.

Did you know that 7,00,000 people have heart attacks in India each year. and out of them only 10 % survive? This is because a patient needs to get to the hospital within an hour of the initial cheat pain.

Artificial defibrillation just at the moment the heart stops beating can revive almost 80-85 % of the patients. For more on the visit and the demo, please watch my vidoe from the center above.

As always comments and suggestions are welcome.
