Community Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for public use are becoming common place, particularly in more rural areas where it’s often impossible for the Ambulance Service to meet their 8 minute target attendance time for life threatening emergencies. Sadly however, most people are not confident enough to consider using an AED, although it’s actually very easy.
In a Cardiac Arrest situation (the heart has stopped) A casualty’s survival chances dramatically increase by up to 80% if they receive immediate, effective CPR, combined with the use of an AED without delay. (Ensure Ambulance on route) Without immediate effective CPR and the use of an AED the current out of hospital survival rate for a cardiac arrest is a dismal 8%
The Chain of Survival
This popular, one hour awareness course is designed to give members of the public/business employees confidence to perform effective CPR and access and use an AED. It is suitable for anyone between 8 and 108 years of age. CPR is extremely important to keep the brain oxygenated. After around 4 minutes of NO CPR a casualty would, at best, be irreversibly brain damaged.

Low Cost AEDs for Schools:
Did you know – In view of the vital role that AEDs can play in saving the lives of pupils, staff and other users of school premises, (Primary or Secondary) the Department for Education is encouraging ALL Schools to consider purchasing these devices as part of their first aid equipment. Your school could purchase an AED at a significantly reduced rate!!
Campaigners for AEDs in all schools say, every year, an average of 270 children die at school from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.
Survival rates as high as 80% have been reported where CPR and defibrillation are delivered promptly.
£522 is really great value for an AED !!!
AEDs normally cost between £1,000 – £1,500 upwards plus VAT!
Why not speak to your Child’s School or PTA about them purchasing an AED that can be located outside for use by the local community as well.
