1. Executive Officer (AED)
 
About the Registry for Automated External Defibrillator Integration (R-AEDi)
R-AEDi project is a collaboration between the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF) to improve Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) survival rates. When sudden cardiac arrest strikes, it is often fatal. It usually strikes without warning and in the most unexpected situations. Some victims of sudden cardiac arrest may even appear healthy with little or no cardiovascular risk factors. In Singapore, the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survival rate is only around 12%.

Cardiac arrest is a serious condition and every year, over 1,800 persons suffer from OHCA in Singapore, half of whom are below 60 years old. Without intervention, the chances of survival drop by 7%-10%, for every minute after OHCA has occurred. That is why, it is important for everyone to be trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), so that the heart can be shocked back to a normal rhythm.

The R-AEDi project consists of 3 key components:
• Alerting volunteers to nearby cardiac arrest cases via the ‘myResponder’ mobile application;
• Building a National Registry of publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillator(AED); and
• Building an Electronic Registry of members of the public that are trained in CPR.
