If an AED is used and effective CPR performed within 3-5 minutes of a cardiac arrest, the chances of survival increase from 6% to 74%
5% of all sudden cardiac arrests happen in the workplace. As a result many businesses now have AEDs on the premises. The Emergency First Aid at Work course doesn’t cover the use of defibrillators and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommends that anyone who might have to use it be properly trained.
The Hireman’s AED and CPR course covers the core knowledge required to perform CPR as well as understand the workings of an AED. The key points the course covers are:
- Understanding an AED: what it does and how it works
- Care and maintenance of an AED
- When to use an AED
- Using an AED together with CPR
- Understanding the difference between a heart attack and a cardiac arrest
Using a defibrillator for real in a highly pressurised situation can be difficult. This course will provide the knowledge and experience to ensure that everyone present will be aware of how to use the AED properly and deal with the situation should it occur.
Successful delegates will receive a certificate valid for three years.
