The moment someone begins to have a heart attack is always shocking and upsetting, whether you are simply a bystander or you personally know the victim. In this critical situation, it takes acting fast and thinking quickly on your feet to save a life. While emergency services personnel will always try to respond as soon as they can, minutes matter most in the case of a heart attack or other cardiac emergency. What can you do? If there is a nearby AED defibrillator, you can help with a minimal amount of technical knowledge. These incredible modern technologies can diagnose problems with the rhythm of a person’s heart automatically. If it detects a correctable problem, it can administer the appropriate electrical shock, again automatically. This can and does save lives!
Knowing how to use one of these devices before a situation arises is a good step to take towards being prepared for an emergency. Australian First Aid offers a free way to learn all about using an AED defibrillator online. If you are living with a cardiac patient and want to provide a home safeguard, we also offer a way for you to purchase a device for shipment direct to your door through APL Healthcare.
