Take Heart Australia Day
OnQue has been working closely with Take Heart Australia (THA), a new charitable organisation formed to dramatically increase the survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest in Australia for over two years. A cardiac arrest, where the heart suddenly stops beating, strikes over 30,000 Australians every year and leaves only 1 in 10 alive. 95% of victims die before they even reach a hospital. Yet in places like Seattle, USA, that figure sits above 60%, because their community has the knowledge and willingness to step in and save lives before emergency services can arrive. It’s a cause that OnQue believes in, and we have been involved in THA’s growth since its formation in 2014.
