Following the Defibrillator’s installation at the Parish Hall, the Parish Council will be holding a free community awareness and training session on Saturday 20th May at 10.00am in the Parish Hall and we would encourage all residents to come along and learn a little more about this potentially life saving device.
Many cardiac arrest victims can be saved by using a defibrillator to provide an electric shock to restore the heart’s normal rhythm. The defibrillator is designed to be used by anyone, even those with little or no medical training. Acting like a personal coach, the machine itself will guide the operator through the rescue process with verbal prompts and a video screen explaining exactly what needs to be done and when. It’s completely safe and it won’t allow a shock to be given unless the person’s heart requires it.
The defibrillator we decided to install was the Lifeline View. It has a large, full-colour interactive display that gives you step-by-step instructions for performing CPR, rescue breathing and external defibrillation.
For further details about the specific defibrillator we have chosen and just how easy it is to use please have a look at http://www.defibtech.com/us/lifeline-view/features
