CONCERNED? Absolutely no reason to be... and we don't intend to cause anyone, any offence, henceforth.
Defibrillators are designed to be 'IDIOT PROOF'. A.K.A - AED, or a defib in short.
Does one need defibrillator training? YES and NO.
*YES - training has many benefits*
- To feel supremely confident defibrillator training is HIGHLY recommended.
- Learn best practices, trouble shooting and maintenance, thus ensuring an AED is available and ready for immediate use.
- Training offers make and model specific instructions.
- And of course benefit from CPR training.
*NO - training advised but not necessary*
You see when we say a defibrillator is made 'IDIOT PROOF', please allow us to clarify.
Operating an AED in an event of a cardiac arrest is simple. Once removed from its case and powered, the easy to follow voice prompts guide the user. It also instructs correct electrode placements.
DID YOU KNOW? - Utilise an AED with effective CPR improves chances of survival from 6% to 74%.
That's a significant difference.
Take away point - operating an AED is dead simple. (Excuse the pun).
And if training is required we'll be glad to help - http://bit.ly/L2AED
