When a person suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, prompt and effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation is the only treatment.
Defibrillators analyse the heart rhythm and deliver a shock to get the heart out of this irregular rhythm to then let the heart’s pacemaker restore its natural rhythm.
Unfortunately, many people do not know the importance of defibrillation and how it can potentially save the estimated 100,000 deaths in the UK from sudden cardiac arrest each year.
This is where ResusAid can help you by understanding the science, choosing the right defibrillator and accessories and then training you to use it in line with the most recent guidelines.
If you need guidance in setting up your new defibrillator, we can deliver it and set it up for you, showing you the main functions and talk you through what you need to do to ensure it is working properly.
Or, we can provide a full certificated training course that will allow you and your staff to understand how to use the device should the need arise.
