Automated External Defibrillation (AED) Training
The chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute passed, and although basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm, it is not a definitive treatment.
Defibrillators administer measured electric shocks during CPR to people in cardiac arrest and is the best way of increasing the chance of survival. We offer a half-day course in Automated External Defibrillation (AED) training which conforms to the current Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines.
- Recognition and treatment of conscious/unconscious heart attack
- Demonstrate CPR and discuss the rationale for CPR
- The conditions where AED can be used and what AED does
- Be able to apply the pad in the correct position on a dummy and connect them to a machine
- Be able to describe the additional items that may need to apply pads on people
- Demonstrate the correct process for CPR with and AED attached in various scenarios on the machine
