DUFFIELD DEFIBRILLATORS – update June 2020

We now have a lot more information about the location and availability of Defibrillators in Duffield.

Some are available for public use, 24/7, and others are on private property primarily for use on the premises when open.

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of premature death. A person’s chance of survival increases from 6% to 70% if treated with an AED and effective CPR within the first 5 minutes.

Many people who collapse with cardiac arrest can be saved if people nearby:

  1. Recognise what has happened and call 999 (or 112) for an emergency ambulance immediately – the telephone operator will tell you whether there is an AED
  2. Start and continue cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) – especially chest compressions until the ambulance arrives.
  3. Use an AED to shock the heart back to its normal rhythm – You don’t need any training to use an AED in an emergency. Voice prompts tell you what to do.
