Who needs Defibrillator (AED) training?

Currently, the Health & Safety Executive does not provide governance on the provision of a defibrillator in the workplace.  Their first aid courses cover effective CPR, but the provision of a defibrillator and associated AED training is left to the employers discretion.

That said, they do recommend that any workplace that does provide an on-site defibrillator has staff that are adequately trained in their usage.

We at Britannia Fire Training have seen on many occasions the amazing results of effective CPR coupled with the prompt delivery of a defibrillator shock. Sadly however, often we are unable to arrive in time to save a patient due to the distressingly rapid speed that the brain begins to die when starved of oxygen. The act of using a defibrillator can regularly mean the difference between life and death. Whilst modern defibrillators are user friendly and guide the user through the process of use step by step, it can be applied quickly and with more confidence if the user already has experience and training in its usage. Instead of reading instructions and getting to grips with the equipment, the user can apply the defibrillator correctly and accurately without hesitation. It's these saved seconds which can make all the difference.

Every member of our defibrillator training staff has had hands on experience with defibrillators at real emergencies unlike other training providers, who may come from non-medical backgrounds. Our experience of the reality of a cardiac arrest means that we can truly describe, demonstrate the full scenario of a resuscitation attempt. We explain how things really feel, the thoughts that are likely to go through your mind and the mechanisms to use to allow you to focus on the job at hand.

This is why our training staff are ideal for the delivery of defibrillator training. We have used them countless times, and seen first-hand the true lifesaving benefits that they, coupled with effective CPR, can bring.
