    The cardiac charity SADS UK aims to save lives, providing information, funding research and medical equipment to prevent premature sudden cardiac death. Working in the areas of Research, Prevention and Emergency Care lives have been saved as a direct result of the work of SADS UK. SADS UK highlights the fact that young people and even children can be affected by potentially fatal cardiac conditions. SADS UK was granted international affiliate status to the SADS Foundation, Utah in December 2000 and works with SADS organisations overseas. Education and provision of defibrillators SADS UK works in the community to provide information about SADS and cardiac arrest. The charity focuses on the provision of defibrillators in schools, together with training and continues to lobby Government to bring in legislation to make defibrillators and training compulsory in all schools. The charity assists many organisations to put defibrillators in place and provides external cabinets for defibrillators so that they are available 24/7 to the community. SADS UK promotes teaching of ‚??The Warning Signs‚?? by medical and first aid training schools and distributes these to youth organisations and widely in the community to help identify people at risk so that they may be treated.
