Automated External Defibrillator training is quickly becoming common in the workplace. Heart disease is one of the main causes of death in the UK. In event of someone collapsing following a heart attack, they may be in cardiac arrest in which case time is life. The quicker this person receives a controlled electrical shock the higher their chances of survival. More and more workplaces are starting to include Automated External Defibrillator [AED] training in the first aid training for their staff.
United Kingdom Resuscitation Council guidelines emphasis the importance of early defibrillation as part of the chain of survival in victims of cardiac arrest. Whilst AEDs are becoming simpler the additional confidence from AED training can result in workplace first aiders being able to administer a shock quicker than those untrained in the use of an AED.
All our training reflects our belief that “first aid training is a contact sport” so delegates will get plenty of “hands on” and the chance to practice their skills.
