Automated External Defibrillation–“Every second counts: After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone's chance of survival by 10 per cent”
Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and workplaces. Heart disease is one of the UK’s greatest killers, with British Heart Foundation (BHF) statistics estimating that more than 60,000 sudden cardiac arrests take place each year outside of a hospital environment. According to Wood (2007), this amounts to approximately 74% of the total cardiac arrests in the UK.
A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in resuscitation and choking procedures....
This course is suitable for anyone who wishes to further their first aid skills and wants to be trained in the use of an AED, whether they are a qualified First Aider or not.
