Defibrillation Course

Course Description

Heart-Attack_209_203Cardiac Arrest is the biggest killer in this country. Over 150,000 people die as a result. Sadly, many of these people could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs’) are now becoming more common throughout a range of workplaces.

A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. This very practical course will allow suitably qualified First Aid personnel to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also revisits some basic First Aid skills, including resuscitation.
