To many, the Automated External Defibrillator is the device that sits in the locked box, sometimes seen outside of a public house, a fire station or convenience store.  We want more people to know what that device is for, how to gain access to it and if needed how to use it to save the life of someone that has suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

A Sudden Cardiac Arrest or (SCA) is when the heart stops beating abruptly due to a malfunction in the hearts electrical system. It is the leading cause of death worldwide and is responsible for around 150,000 deaths a year in the UK. While half the victims are elderly, SCA can strike younger victims, including those who appear to be in excellent health, athletes and even young children.

As well as the use of a defibrillator, all victims of an SCA need immediate Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) This help to keep blood and oxygen flowing to the brain and vital organs and dramatically increases the chances of survival of someone suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

We not only provide training in CPR and AED but we take you through the whole experience of how to go about becoming a Heart Safe business. On receiving your request for a visit to your premises, one of our staff will arrange a time and date to suit you. We will provide a 45-minute power point presentation, free of charge, outlining our service to you from that initial meet to you taking delivery of your chosen device and completing our three to four hour, certified training program.

OUR SERVICES

Six reasons why your company could benefit from having a defibrillator

  • Onsite AEDs save precious treatment time, and can improve survival odds because they can be used while waiting for emergency medical service personnel to arrive.

  •  A heart rhythm in ventricular fibrillation may only be restored to normal by an electric shock.

  • The AED is compact, lightweight, portable and battery operated; they are safe and easy to use.

  • Modern AEDs won’t allow you to shock a victim that has a heartbeat; this reduces the risk of doing more harm.

  • These devices have a proven track record of helping to save lives in public places as well as in the workplace.

  • Placing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the workplace, along with providing a proper management system and regular training for employees on how to use the devices, can mean the difference between life and death.
