This course is designed for companies and businesses who wish to take the initiative to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on their premises.
Over 270,000 people suffer a heart attack every year in the U.K. Unfortunately, 30% will not make it to a hospital alive. The majority might have been saved had their heart been defibrillated in the first five minutes of their cardiac arrest. An AED unit with a trained operator at the site of a sudden cardiac arrest can raise the chance of survival from 0% to 80%.
Here at Adventure First Aid, we provide hands-on and practical defibrillator training allowing learners to have a better understanding and experience using an AED. AED Defibrillator Training is suitable for anyone interested in furthering their emergency aid skills, or who work at a location where an AED is present. Learners who complete the course receive a qualification valid for 12 months, as recommended by the European Resuscitation Council.
Our most popular defibrillator training course is our 3-hour program which covers:
Incident Assessment – The systematic approach to managing first aid incidents.
Airway Management – How to establish a safe open airway. Handling an unconscious casualty using the recovery position.
Breathing Problems – How to administer CPR (Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation), including the use of an AED.
