About AED – treatment for cardiac arrest

Automated External Defibrillation (AED) has proved to be the best treatment for most people who suffer a cardiac arrest. There is strong scientific evidence to support early defibrillation and the chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute that passes between collapse and the first shock. Basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm but in itself does not usually resolve the problem.

This course (presentation and content) was far superior to my last course with a large national organisation. Excellent!
Just wanted to give a little feedback on the Emergency First Aid at Work Course I attended last Friday. It was by far the most informative first aid course I have attended and I thought Simone was excellent, keeping everyone engaged for the whole day.
An excellent course and trainer. He was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He answered every question thoroughly, giving accurate guidance on how to deal with every scenario. I will be using the company again, very soon. Thanks!
I found the course very useful and engaging. It helped to have all the equipment available for practical use. Our trainer made the class comfortable and welcoming. At no point did I feel pressured or out of my comfort zone. A very nice environment to learn in. Thank you!
The trainer was very engaging. It was clear he knew the science behind why things were done, not just “because”. He was always happy to answer any questions on the subject. His management was also impressive when it came to the less co-operative members of the group. The topic was clear and concise with information suitable to all work places, including domestic and public.
Very good content and well delivered by experienced and skilful trainer. I am now aware and confident to deliver first aid.
I really enjoyed it. The knowledge of the trainer was good and he added in more science than other people have, so it wasn’t boring as I understood it and learnt more things.
I found this training a lot better than first aid training I’ve been to before. Not only was I having a first aid course, but it also felt a bit like a biology session too, which was good. I can’t think of any ways to improve it, as it was very interesting.
