Automated External Defibrillators (AEDS) are proven lifesavers; they are very easy to operate and can be used even if you haven’t received any training. If you have a defibrillator in your workplace, we will support you by providing your staff with the knowledge and the confidence to act quickly, which might just save a life.
Automated External Defibrillation (AED) is well established as the only effective therapy for cardiac arrest. The scientific evidence to support early defibrillation is overwhelming, the single most determinant of survival being the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock. The chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute. Basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm but is not a definitive treatment.
We offer a comprehensive Automated External Defibrillation (AED) session based on the necessary theory, backed up with practical exercises. The session is run over half a day, is informative and enjoyable and allows the students to gain confidence in what is a new and possibly somewhat daunting skill.
In addition to training, we can offer recommendations in areas such as company protocols, purchasing equipment and on-going help and support with training and development.
Training conforms to current Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines.
