Defibrillators Save Lives

Acting quickly when someone is in cardiac arrest and fighting for their life is crucially important, and with around 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK every year, there is a good chance that someone in your workforce might be next.

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses and treats life threatening cardiac arrhythmias through the application of electrical therapy, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.  We can train your first aid people to become effective users of this vital life saving tool.   

AEDs are easy to use and could be the best investment you ever make for your company and staff.

Why should you have a defibrillator?

Immediate defibrillation can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

  • The chance of survival after the heart stops falls by around 10% for every minute that passes without defibrillation
  • If defibrillation is delivered promptly, survival rates as high as 75% have been reported

It can take the emergency services several minutes (and sometimes longer) to arrive, can you afford to wait for their help?

If you would like to know more about AED’s and how they can become an essential and integral life saving tool for your work-place, or if you want more information about general first aid arrangements please give us a call on 0800 111 4207 or contact us here.
