Automated External Defibrillation (AED)
Automated External Defibrillation (AED) is well established
as the only effective therapy for cardiac arrest.
The scientific evidence to support early defibrillation is overwhelming, the single most determinant of survival being the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock. The chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute. Basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm but is not a definitive treatment.
We offer a comprehensive Automated External Defibrillation (AED) programme based on the necessary theory, backed up with lots of
practical sessions. The course is run over half a day, and is made as informative, yet as enjoyable as possible, thus allowing the students to gain
confidence in what is a new and possibly somewhat daunting skill.
