Defibrillation

Each year in Britain around 30,000 people have a sudden cardiac arrest outside of a medical environment. This can happen to anyone at any time – from young children at school to adults at home, work or in a public place.

It’s simple – Defibrillators make all the difference!

Almost half of all cardiac arrest casualties are resuscitated successfully when defibrillation is given in the first four minutes. There are currently no laws enforcing the provision of defibrillators in the workplace however the British Heart Foundation and the Resuscitation Council UK recommend that they are made readily available to save lives. . Companies have defibrillators because morally they know it is the right thing to do and the availability of a defibrillator demonstrates that the organisation is prepared to invest in proactive health and Safety.

 

What is defibrillation?

A defibrillator is a device that sends an electric shock to the casualty to restore the normal pumping of the heart to re-start blood circulation. An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can interpret a casualty’s heartbeat and automatically send an electric shock. It will not deliver a shock unless it detects the presence of a heart rhythm that requires defibrillation.

Our Services

There are many different types of AED, and there are different factors that you should take into account when sourcing an AED these include:

Defibrillator (AED) Training
