Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. When it happens, an Automated External Defibrillators (AED) can help make the difference between life and death. On the 15th June, Joy Taggart will be presenting on Automated External Defibrillators and Defibrillator programmes for the lay, minimally trained rescuer who is often first at the scene.
Heartsine have been involved in the development of mobile defibrilation technology for many years, you can read more here. Over the course of the presentation you’ll find out about how defibrillators developed from something weighing nearly 50kg to a neat box which can be used by anyone, anytime and anywhere. You’ll get information about implementing an AED programme in your workplace – Why? How? What should be considered? – and you will get the opportunity to see and use an AED yourself.
