General Information

Sudden death is the main cause of mortality in Spain with more than 30.000 deaths, in sports it is also the first cause of mortality. The Lifeguard Project gives solidarity options to be Cardioprotected without cost for the entity.

The increase in defibrillators installed in sports centers and companies makes the survival before a respiratory cardio stop increase, to act with these equipment in the first 5 minutes is able to increase an 70% the survival rate, due to the short response period the use is fundamental of the defibrillators by present personnel until the emergencies arrive, which usually do not have the necessary response time to reach one of these events.

In this way, according to Rubén Campo, expert in cardioprotection and founder of the Lifeguard Project, we should multiply by 10 the number of defibrillators to be up to neighboring countries such as France or Germany and by 50 to compare ourselves with countries such as Japan or the USA.

According to the expert, the economic landscape and the different regulations of each autonomous community do not help the necessary progress that would increase the survival rate and you also have to be careful in how these teams are located, since the correct installation and the correct maintenance are essential, as well as the extinguishers, the defibrillators must be well located, signposted, accessible, with adequate maintenance and there must be personnel familiar with their use. Although they are easy to use and very safe equipment, there are still many people who are afraid of these equipment.

The correct installation is not established in any general norm or national regulation, it is the Spanish Society of Medicine SEMST the certifier of Cardioprotected Spaces which at a national level has marked some guidelines for the correct installation of these equipments in which it includes the minimum distance between defibrillators and the furthest point from the entity, the maintenance, the correct installation and signaling and the adequate training that each Autonomous Community has normally established.

The Lifeguard Project being the main cardioprotection entity in Spain and Latin America offers solidary formulas to get these packs of cardioprotected spaces that include equipment, training and certification such as life-saving bracelets, which are sent free of charge to Educational Centers, Clubs Sports, City Councils and companies and the Cardiovending, a formula for any entity or company that has vending machines can have the complete cardioprotection pack and its maintenance free of charge and without the need to change the vending machines or the supplier company, this action is being implemented by important City Councils for its sports and social centers and companies from different areas. Even so, according to Rubén Campo's words, cardioprotection for those entities that can not participate in these campaigns can be obtained through purchase or rent with significant discounts from the Project.
