Automated External Defibrillator (AED) & Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Every minute after the heart stops, a casualty’s chance of survival diminishes by about 10%*. Defibrillators are simple to use and can be operated without previous training. They are increasingly available in both the community and workplace.
