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.
There are many different types of AED, and there are different factors that you should take into account when sourcing an AED these include:
- Size of the workplace
- Age of the workforce
- Types of equipment and machinery in use
