Do I need an AED?
So many employers don't understand the importance of having a Defib at their site/workplace, particuarly Factories or warehouses.
This webiste has created a very easy and efficient way of deciding whether it is appropriate to have an AED on your site.
Click the link below;
What is an AED and why is it so important?
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias which occur in a patient suffering a Cardiac Arrest. An AED is able to treat them through defibrillation after the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of AEDs is taught in many first aid, first responder and basic life support (BLS) level CPR classes.
Unlike regular defibrillators, an AED requires minimal training to use. It automatically diagnoses the heart rhythm and determines if a shock is needed. Automatic models will administer the shock without the user's command. Semi-automatic models will tell the user that a shock is needed, but the user must tell the machine to do so, usually by pressing a button.
AED makes up part of the lifesaving chain when someone has a Cardiac Arrest, statisics have proven that an AED makes the suvival rate increase dramatically when an AED has been quickly accessible.
AED are safe and easy to use, the user cannot override a "no shock" advisory by an AED and many public places in the communitywill have one in an accessable box which the 999 call operator will advise of a code to unlock and also where the nearest box is.
A sign and symbol such as this will be displaced when an AED is present;
