Additional information

The most common cause for a heart to stop is a ‘heart attack’ (cardiac arrest) and it is usually because it has interrupted the heart’s electrical impulses. Treatment can be given by delivering a controlled electric shock through the heart using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). It is a safe, reliable and computerised device that can analyse heart rhythms and enable a non-medically qualified rescuer to safely deliver the treatment.

The use of a defibrillator can dramatically increase the chances of survival if a casualty’s heart stops beating, but it must be used promptly. For every one minute delay in delivering the shock the chance of survival reduces by up to 10%. The risk of death can be reduced if you have a defibrillator in your workplace and know how to use it.

Defibrillators are simple to use and no previous training is required.
