The ebook version has been available since February 2018 and is rated with 5 stars and has received lots of great reviews…
“this book gives a lucid account of what it is like to survive! It will be of benefit to survivors, those who support them and health professionals who may know the clinical details, but not the actualité of life following a Cardiac Arrest. A fascinating read written frankly and without self pity, this book is enlightening and a must-read as more people survive a Cardiac Arrest” Fay
“As a survivor of a Cardiac Arrest this was a really interesting read. It is somehow re-assuring to find that other people have had the same problems as you with their recovery, but more than anything it is a book of hope, surviving a Cardiac Arrest gives you a second chance, don’t waste it!” Matt
“An amazing book!!!” Caroline
“So glad we found this book, my husband had an SCA and it was truly helpful to read everyone else’s experience” Nicola
The books content is taken from blog articles on this website and longer posts within the SCA UK Facebook group and this updated edition contains a foreword by consultant cardiologist Dr Tom Keeble, NHS Hero 2018.
A massive thanks must go out to all of the contributors to the book…
All proceeds from the sale of the book goes to help SCA UK and SADS UK support survivors and others affected by a sudden cardiac arrest.
We’re sure you won’t regret buying a copy and if you do and find it of value we’d really appreciate it if you could leave a positive review.

After our first meet-up in February 2015, I realised I was not alone. It was the first time since my cardiac arrest the previous year that I had spoken face-to-face with someone who had experienced what I had. This was also true for my wife, who also happened to be my lifesaver. From that meet-up, the idea of SCA UK was born. Since then, we have achieved a considerable amount, primarily providing information, resources and support to others in a similar situation but also raising the profile of survivorship and the need for better post-discharge care. We are starting to get traction in this, and with the formation of the charity, I genuinely believe we have a bright future ahead and will make a significant difference in the lives of many who join our ranks.
