Purchase a Cardiac Science Powerheart G5 defibrillator worth £1,500 for just £950 from Ajuda this month.
We will be donating 100% of the profit from defibrillator sales to Cancer Research Wales ahead of our Managing Director Dawn’s trek up Machu Picchu in November. Find more information on that, here.
What is the purpose of a defibrillator?
If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, chances of survival will increase from 6% to 74%.
The current rate of initial bystander CPR is reported at just 43%.Unfortunately, only 20% of cardiac arrest victims are in a ‘shock-able’ rhythm when the Emergency Services arrive; this figure could be increased if more cardiac arrest victims received CPR from bystanders. Furthermore, when someone is suffering from cardiac arrest, every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10%.
Cardiac arrest can effect anyone, from children, to healthy young adults, to the elderly; by installing a defibrillator on your premises, you are contributing to making it a safe space.
How do I place an order?

Why Cancer Research?
In September 2018, Ajuda’s Managing Director, Dawn Evans, will be trekking up Machu Picchu with a team of other fundraisers. Dawn will be fundraising for Cancer Research Wales. She will be doing this in memory of a life-long friend who sadly passed away in 2016 from cancer.
Cancer Research Wales funds a great variety of projects in Wales which are important in the battle against cancer.
These projects are undertaken in the universities and hospitals throughout the principality and cover many cancer sites that include cancers of the prostate, colon, breast, kidney, blood (leukemia), cervix and esophagus. As well as focusing on site specific cancers the Cancer Research Wales research portfolio is rich in studies that seek to better understand the fundamental processes of cancer biology that are common to all cancers, such as uncontrolled cell growth, invasion and spread, resistance to chemo- and radiotherapies and immune evasion.
