Making Sense of Health and Safety

Did you know? Waiting for emergency services gives a cardiac arrest victim only a 5% chance of survival. But if bystanders immediately administer and maintain cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an automated external defibrillator (AED), those chances increase up to 60%.

An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is now an affordable and essential addition to any workpalce First Aid Kit.  Staff training is not now a pre-requisite.

The statistics must be taken into account when you undertake your First Aid Needs Assessment.

Prompt action in response to cardiac arrest is critical to increasing the chances of survival. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) can greatly improve the victim's chances of survival - every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation decreases the chance of survival by 7-10%

CPR involves chest compressions and rescue breathing, which help circulate oxygenated blood to vital organs like the brain. AEDs are portable electronic devices that can analyse a person's heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock to restore a normal rhythm if necessary.

When someone experiences cardiac arrest, every second counts, and immediate action can be the difference between life and death.

Early defibrillation with an AED can also be crucial in restoring the heart's normal rhythm. It is essential for bystanders to act quickly and perform CPR and use an AED until emergency medical services arrive.

AEDs can also be registered on the National Defirillator Network:  Natonal Defibrillator Network so that you can make your defibrillator free to access for the general public and help save lives in your community.
