Automated External Defibrillator Training


4 Hour Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Course

Automated External Defibrillator Training

Automated External Defibrillators (AED‘s) are increasingly available in public areas such as large shopping centres, railway stations and cinema’s. Some larger private organisations are investing in such equipment too.

 

Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) is an abnormal rhythm of the heart occurring when the heart muscle is damaged as a result of a heart attack or when the heart is starved of oxygen. The use of an AED can correct this abnormal rhythm by administrating one or more electric shocks.

 

According to the UK Resuscitation Council, survival rates in cases where an AED has been used promptly can be as high as 75%

 

The AED course follows the current UK Resuscitation Council guidelines and prepares a first aider in the use of the machine.

 

The course consists of:

  • Understanding the Chain of Survival
  • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
  • AED theory
  • AED Practical with scenarios
  • Records

The cost of courses is based on the numbers of students. Call Bellatrix today for course availability and prices.
