Cardiac arrests can affect anyone at any time, so having quick access to a defibrillator at your workplace or when needed is imperative – for every minute delay in using a defibrillator, the chance of survival reduce by 10%.
Using an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is simple, just switch it on and follow the voice and visual prompts – ideal for use in publics spaces. In the event of an incident, you can follow these steps:
- Check for a Response
- Call 999 or 112
- Examine Airway
- Check Breathing
- Administer CPR
Semi-Automatic External Defibrillators are preferable for trained personnel.
Consider Your Environment
An automatic defibrillator is better suited to public spaces, as this is more appropriate for untrained users. A semi-AED would be preferable for trained personnel.
Who will need the Defibrillator?
Children and adults will require different sized pads (paediatric or adult pads), so consider this when implementing a defibrillator into your workspace.
