A register of defibrillators is being set up in South Australia
'Lifesaving' register of defibrillators to help South Australians survive heart attacks - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
"A register of defibrillators is being set up in South Australia and it might just save your life.
The SA Ambulance Service wants businesses, community groups and individuals to report automated external defibrillators (AEDs) that are publicly accessible.
When someone calls triple-0 in an emergency, the call taker will then direct them to the nearest AED, day or night.
"Across Australia, the likelihood of surviving an out of hospital cardiac arrest is currently 10 per cent but with increased access to AEDs, alongside the correct use of CPR, we can work to improve this,"
Health Minister Peter Malinauskas said."
