We have a team of nurses offering training in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). This training gives the learner the skills, knowledge, understanding and confidence in CPR and the safe use of an AED, enabling them to provide effective emergency lifesaving
This is available to all ages, as the more people able to help in a cardiac arrest the better.
We will also carry out a risk assessment to establish defibrillator locations and recommended actions in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
By training your club members, students or employees in Basic Life Support and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), you will be providing essential life skills and giving your colleagues the confidence to save a life. The training is fun and teaches skills that could be essential at any time.
Every year, more than 30,000 individuals suffer from a cardiac arrest outside hospital, sadly less than 10% of these people survive. Medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest are life-threatening, so it’s sensible to consider what you would do if one of your club members, students, employees, or visitors suffered one.
If someone collapses to the floor and is unresponsive and not breathing, their heart has stopped working, they are in cardiac arrest and time is critical. Quick use of an AED can lead to survival rates of 50% to 70%, but every minute that passes without chest compressions and defibrillation, reduces their chance of survival by up to 10%.
We are proud to offer comprehensive, yet enjoyable, hands-on BLS and AED training, based on the guidelines of The Resuscitation Council (UK).
Defibrillators work by assessing the heart’s rhythm and giving it a shock if it is needed. Attaching two electrodes to the chest, it reads the heart, to determine whether a shock should be delivered or not. Designed to be user-friendly, defibrillators can be used by anyone whether medically trained or not, meaning anyone can deliver lifesaving care. Our training will give your staff, pupils, or club members the confidence to act quickly and effectively. Having a defibrillator nearby when in an emergency can drastically increase the chances of survival.
You may decide you need a defibrillator installed at your workplace, school, or sports club for a number of reasons.
Defibrillators are a great way of restoring peace of mind, should a sudden cardiac arrest occur. With the chances of survival increasing tenfold when an AED is used on a sudden cardiac arrest victim, it is really important to consider getting one.
